When you logon, your CWD is the same as your logon group. If you
never do a :Chdir command to change the CWD, you never
experience the HFS. If you do
chdir /SYS/PUB after

If you start a filename with a slash "/", MPE assumes that
it is an absolute pathname. That is, it starts at
the root directory and
traverses directories until it gets to the desired file,
It would take a lot of typing if you always had to give
the absolute pathname, so MPE also recognizes relative pathnames.
These are relative to the CWD. For example,
means look for "BOB" in the CWD, as does
If you want to look for a POSIX name in the current working
directory by using the MPE command interpreter, remember to put a
./ (dot-slash) in front of it.
