More important than the answer, is the method of geting it.
=> Isn't Oberon Companion: connected with the supplied *.Text
-> System.Directory *.Text
NB. you don't need to type in those 23 chars.
You've got a menu for it. Or your menu should have 'System.Directory ^'
So MiddleMouse on 'System.Directory' gives you:-
=> The string "ompanion" might be in the first chapter,
One klux opens the TextFrame of Chapter0.Text
 and 'wipe/select "ompanion" where you see it on the screen,
 like I see it now, from your email,
 and klux the [Search] button of the Chapter0.Text:TextFrame
 and see:

That's right, I was wanting to look for some source code and didn't how where.
Eg. I'd like to understand how LEO communicates with linux, when linux
connects to the internet. With the original N-O, you could trace the
causation right down to the serial port driving your modem.
