Hi Bill.

| These symbols with _ look like standard Axiom escapes to
| me. In Axiom (starting probably at the bootsys level)
| the underscore character acts the same as the \ in C.
| I am quite surprized therefore that your change to the
| g-error.boot.pamphlet code, removing the _ even compiles
| at all. In the bootsys language (as in the Axiom language
| itself)
|  *STANDARD-OUTPUT* : fluid := $texOutputStream
| should be a syntax error because of the unescaped special
| symbols appearing on the left.
|  ... hmmm.
| I would look for reasons why the _ are apparently not
| being interpreted properly as escapes.

Thanks for the info - will do.

| And I'm really glad you are back looking at Axiom on
| Windows! It is entirely resistant to my feeble attempts
| to figure it out!

The Windows Axiom failure is the last GCL boundary I need to push back and
so I hope to focus more closely on it.  Unfortunately GCL itself is rapidly
evolving under pressure from the Unix side and that usually spells more work
and therefore distraction from Axiom.
