Hi jsLib,

I downloaded jslib because i would like to use the file i/o as described in:

I am trying to follow along on the example in file.js.html.

I'm trying to do with with a command line js interpreter
to minimize all potential issues in a first test.

I built firefox, with xpcshell, because i understand that i
cannot just use the js that comes with ubuntu 9.10,
the system i use.  (And in fact, that js, JavaScript C,
1.7.0, really does give me more issues than xpcshell.)

The example in file.js.html says to first do
That file does not exist, at least if you just download
the jslib tarball, but the tarball does have jslib/jslib.js.

The load command
seems to work ok.

But all of the include commands i tried failed
(reported status -2147942487).  For example,
reports status -2147942487.

And commands of the form
   f=new File('......');
give a reference error on File.

So i assume that i have an include() order problem
of some sort, or maybe i haven't load()ed enough.

Thanks in advance for any advice on how to
deal with this.
