No David, there isn't. What you do is enclose the filename in double quotes.
For example, if I am in directory foo/bar/today, and I want a file in
foo/bar/yesterday I would issue the following command (or an equivalent):

yes? use "../yesterday/newfile"

You are right that if there are subdirectories that you get files from often
you should include them in your FER_DATA path.
