[REBOL] Re: Context misery

Well, it's dynamic insofar as I don't know what it is when the program starts. It is read as a string from a file. So (the original intention was) it goes into the function as a string, and comes out as a global variable. So I can use your function like this: myfunc to word! FieldName where Fieldname is the string. And that solves the original problem. Thanks! While I've got your attention, can I just say that I really really like this language! Thank you all for creating it.....I think my main problem is trying to run before I can walk, and often running straight into brick walls before donning the right head gear. --Colin.
