Well, but:
>> parse "x" [to "x" to end to end to end to end to end to "x"]
== false The rule certainly reached the end of the string (but itself couldn't be completed!)... I missed the fact that [to end] reaches the end, but doesn't thereby stop 'parse. So If I ask for more than one occurance, there will be a loop. Logical. Thanks for all help, ~H
