The newest vanilla versions have [list fromsymbol] and [list tosymbol]. If
you write it the output of [list fromsymbol] into an array using [array
set] you can find the last / character (ascii 47), [array get] the rest
([list length] will help you figure out how much to get), and turn it back
into a symbol with [list tosymbol].
