no dice for me
Authored by: uurf on Dec 18, '02 01:32:04PM
there is an alias to the program iPulse on my desktop. I get the following errors:
[local:~/Desktop] username% apath iPulse
## Component Manager: attempting to find symbols in a component alias of type (regR/carP/x!bt)
execution error: Can't make file "Macintosh HD:iPulse" into a alias. (-1700)

I have aliases of Home and Documents in my Favorites folder.
[local:~/Library/Favorites] username% apath Documents/
[local:~/Library/Favorites] username% apath Documents
[local:~/Library/Favorites] username% apath Home
[local:~/Library/Favorites] username%
as you can see the directory never changes
