Thanks Elan - As far as the other files associated with Rebol, how do you handle storage? Either I have multiple versions of the same files in different directories, or I overwrite a script intended for use with View with one that only works in Core, etc. Maybe scripts should have command: core: and view: blocks that only get executed depending upon the version of rebol being used... I'm enjoying the book, BTW. -- Pete Wason|"LWATPLOTG"|[zoon--stumpworld--c]|[mrzoon--hynoom--c]|CUCUG|TA|PHX
