Actually, the variable names I used earlier in the thread were VI (for Variable Integer), VS (for Variable String), and VB (for Variable Block). I just re-used the VI name out of context. That said, actually I do use vim. (I just got 6.0 on my laptop.) I decided years ago that a single multi-platform editor was A Good Idea. That pretty much narrowed the choices down to vi and emacs, and vi was more readily available on more of the platforms I use(d). Once I found vim, there was no looking back! If you've got an up-to-date REBOL syntax file, I'd love to swipe a copy! As for my being offended, I'm just glad you decided to look for hidden meanings in the name VI instead of the name VB! The possibities in that one are truly horrifying! -jn- -- ; Joel Neely [joel--neely--fedex--com] 901-263-4460 38017/HKA/9677 REBOL [] foreach [order string] sort/skip reduce [ true "!" false head reverse "rekcah" none "REBOL " prin "Just " "another " ] 2 [prin string] print ""
