It'd be FREBOL then though, wouldn't it? (: (Umm, and pronounced free-bol , of course...) I'd second (third?) the thoughts of us linguistically challenged native English-speakers. The non-native English-speakers use of English here is very impressive. I salute you all! Not that you should think you need to be fluent in English to post here. Like moving to a functional programming language for the first time, It opens our eyes to different ways of saying things when you use syntax that is halfway between your language and ours. As to a French (or other non-English forums), I think they would be a good thing. English-speakers can come here or to other lists or boards for help, but I don't think you should have to learn English before you get access to good REBOL support. In some ways it's kind of nice that the first book that covers View wasn't written in English. Shows REBOL's a world-language too. -- Carl Read
