Dear Forum,

Yesterday, I ftp'd Gap 3.4, and it set up effortlessly on my IBM PC
(after I deleted Gap 3.3 to make room). Of course I immediately wanted
to check out GRAPE 2.2 (the Gap-only functions should work under
MS-DOS). When I did RequirePackage("grape"); I got a message that
grape was not installed. The problem was solved by changing certain
"/" to "\\" in gap3r4p0\lib\abattoir.g, so that the pathnames would
work with MS-DOS. Is there any way to code the path construction so
that the same library functions work under both Unix and MS-DOS?

But anyway, I look forward to exercising many of the new features in 3.4.

Best regards, Leonard.
