Dir$ not used when opening files that don't specify a drive/volume.

Description

Example: Help_69, line 134 from AMOSPro_Examples disk.

This example will fail even though the file is in the proper directory structure, and Dir$ is set properly.

Dir$="AMOSPro_Examples:Examples/H-6/"
Open In 1,"jokes"

Result:

File not found at line: 134, column: 1.

Manually entering the full path into the Open command works.

Open In 1,"AMOSPro_Examples:Examples/H-6/jokes"

Corrected! Actually I was not taking at all the current path into account, so it has corrected the whole filesystem.

Checked in version 0.9.5.1.
Still fails. Drive not found error occurred when setting Dir$, when using the "default resources".

Works when the application's local filesystem is used. Perhaps Dir$ has not been checked properly?

Also works when the full path is directly coded in the Open statement.

The principle of the default drive is that when transpiling, I include the file if the path to the file WITHIN the instruction is a CONSTANT. Here, Open In does not work on a constant, but on a reserved variable, Dir$.
What you ask, detecting that Dir$ actually contains a fixed path would imply a specific evaluation of the values affected to Dir$ etc. A lot of work for not much. Code should remain code, I cannot pseudo-evaluate while transpiling.
