Well, rebol operates left to right, yes. But :n: still would have to be treated as one single word, not as one character appearing in two different words. (Afterall n: is not the word 'n and then a colon, it is a set-word!, and so this would have to be a something-word too. Someone in this thread called it a get-set-word. Why not?) I just wanted to point out that it is ambiguous. Once this is becomming part of a standard and is being used, however, I agree it won't be ambiguous anymore. I like the feature, and I have wanted something like this before. Come to think about it, posting this as a comment directly to Carl maybe was a bit hasty... HY
