Thanks,  Rob
Of course!   And it worked.

I don't use the files script for user scripts under Windows,
as it's so easy to use File Explorer,  or utilities in a dos window,  so had clean
forgotten that the script was available in the iPad J installation.

The iPad (and presumably other i-devices) seems paranoid in its
determination to stop users seeing their own folders/directories.

Still puzzled about 1!:55 - is it not implemented for iPad?

The iPad’s help window doesn’t seem to include a delete feature.
je only gets a file up for editing,  while jd only lists files, as far as I can 
I found that 1!:0 gives a unix ls-type listing,  which is useful.
So I thought 1!:55 might work for deleting scripts, etc.  However, it returns a 
domain error.

Thanks for any help,


ps Jprogramming is probably the wrong forum - sorry if so.
