I just sent an email to the Ally list in the thread module that includes a rudimentary chat-type server. With a few modifications, it should do something like this. To collect single characters from the console you can use something like Cal Dixon's code for his rem editor (which I recommend, btw. A well-designed and very useful and surprisingly stable beta version): port: open/binary [ scheme: 'console ] get-key: does [ wait port to-string copy/part port 1 ] All you need to do is open an additional tcp port add code that inserts the value returned by get-key into the tcp port. On the client side you open a tcp port and use prin to output the character that was received on the tcp input port. Hope this helps, ;- Elan [ : - ) ] author of REBOL: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE REBOL Press: The Official Source for REBOL Books visit me at
