I'd need your help to resolve this.

1. What's [.bin_vms]? Is it directory called ".bin_vms".
2. What's []? Is the OpenVMS equvivalent of "." (current directory)?
3. What is printed if you run jam on the following code:

p = [.bin_vms] ;
ECHO $(p) ;
p = $(p:P) ;
ECHO $(p) ;
p = $(p:P) ;
ECHO $(p) ;
p = $(p:P) ;
ECHO $(p) ;
