If you had a large number of keys to search then REBOL has the hash! datatype. But I'd be suprised if it were faster than using block! like you are now for anything less than about 150 items. I haven't measured it - just a guess. If you end up with a functionally similiar REBOL script to your Python code it would be interesting to know how they compare in performance. Regards, Brett.
