The copy I received back also had one word wrapped in the include
file. It was in the section "function select_drive()", but the word
was "Choices", not "select".  I guess sending these files encoded
with binhex would be a much better way to avoid these potential
wordwrap problems.

"open(file_name,"r")" should of had a space after the comma for FIND
to find it, sorry.  I am assuming you are using PatRat's binhex file.
 If so the "end if" statement referred to can also be found by
searching for "--new tom" which is at the end of the line.  About six
lines up from this are the two lines that need to have "--" added to
the beginning of the lines.  Comments on these lines say "--delete".
If you are using the binhex version these changes could fix your
problem since these changes affects how the editor starts up.  If not,
 does the following short program work?  Is anyone else having a
similar problem?

include filesrch.e   -- Name of the include file routine
sequence fs
fs = file_select("") -- "" selects the current directory on
                     -- startup or type "c:\\euphoria\\" for
                     -- example, for a user defined startup
                     -- directory.
puts(1,fs)           -- Prints to screen the selected path
                     -- and file name selected.

    Hope this helps
