[REBOL] Re: newbie - How to

Well, you are getting close! You could try replacing the last 'print with a 'prin -- that might solve the extra newline issue. I'm not sure what you mean by "overhead" but piping to more is always going to have a couple of drawbacks: an intermediate file, and no output appearing until program termination. If these are problems, you may need to wean your user into looking at the REBOL console output instead of the DOS console.

That's a mystery. |more doesn't work at all on my set-up -- I just get a DOS redirection error. You could avoid using |More, and perhaps gain a little more control over what you are trying to do like this: --------hello.r-------- REBOL [ Title: "Hello World"] echo %temp.txt print "hello world" -------- Then execute it with a bat file: ---------hello.bat------- @echo off rebol -sq hello.r type temp.txt -------- (Note the -sq to remove any "script wants permissions" popups) This gives me just three lines of output on the DOS console: c:\temp>runhello Hello world C:\temp> Sunanda.
