"~/Programs/Ruby/mysin.sim" utf8 file-lines
generates this error:
Unix system call “open” failed:
No such file or directory (2)
It was called with the following arguments:
"$HOME/Programs/Ruby/mysin.sim" utf8 file-lines
"/home/salil/Programs/Ruby/mysin.sim" utf8 file-lines
works as expected.
Version: I am using the development release on 2011-11-18 for Linux.
It seems right to implement ~ (tilde) support on *nix platforms, but I'm not so sure we want to support $HOME and other environment variables ($LIBRARY, $LD_PATH). In the case of $HOME, it may be better to ask that that the path be constructed directly via:
home "Programs/Ruby/mysin.sim" append-path .
