First off, YRNDL expects there to be a %home% dir and prompts
for it if it doesn't find it defined in the environment. (yours is
e:\yarn\kevin and is defined in the environment. It expects that there
will be a yarn CONFIG file in the subdirectory %home%/YARN.
Now the fix may be as simple as adding the full path for the filter
program as it appears in CONFIG. In your case you would have the
line in CONFIG read
I hope that fixes it, because if it doesn't, YRNDL may not be compatible
with your set up.
Why so? YRNDL expects there to be a %yarn% dir and
it expects that %yarn% is where it can find all of the (OS/2) yarn
executables such as filter1.exe, etc. You see the problem?
Your %yarn% dir is there, defined as e:\yarn, but it doesn't
contain the os/2 yarn executables.
By the way YRNDL DOES use the same dir as %home% and %yarn%.
That is pure convenience. I could separate them.
Let me know how you make out.

I think you are correct
