I hope so, it would be so nice, so incredible nice :) [imho minor "cosmetic" features] How about... Pattern matching, I would want to use amigastyle pattern matching, try to do a good old ~(#?.info) in any unix shell, and you'll understand why :) .key-functionality, type any command with ? as argument and you'll be presented with the avaible and supported options, which you than can type in directly from stdin. The problem will ofcourse be to execute external code from withing rebol/core, but details, if we could have the rebol interpreter act as a portable AmigaShell as far as basic features as directory browsing, type, more, redirect, piping, amigashell parsing etc, that would just be superb. :) -- kolla, regexp is sick sick sick...
