  as the README file says [ or should have said; it definitely says so in
current version 2.1.3, and on the megrez ftp server ], the name of the file is
either  C:\_GPRC  or  C:\ETC\GPRC  or  the place indicated by environment
variable %GPRC [ no idea how you set that on modern Windows, DOS used to have
the AUTOEXEC.BAT thing, but it apparently got dumped. Don't have a Windows
box myself to try this out... ].

Currently your gprc is disregarded. When it is taken into account, you will
probably have to add an explicit path like

  read "C:\pari\test.gp"

Or add something like

  path = ".;C:\pari"

if you plan to have all your scripts in thie \pari directory.

The place where the pari binary lies is irrelevant.

Hope this helps,
