Oh, great... I know of many workarounds, but hey, give me break. Isn't this great that we can call a telnet client or do a wrap around client/server (like telnet, but specialized only for this purpose) for calling one single OS system call? This should be in REBoL. Just like the open "listen" "write" "read", these are basically system calls. We need execute/spwan and/or "fork" and have many things that we could stop complaining about for quite some time. I know Carl wanted to implement it in different way (to have task! and stuf) but this wouldn't break that schema, I believe... Well, whatever... Jano
