OK, how about this as a five-minute workaround:
Put the ref-data.r file, used by view-ref.r, somewhere handy - maybe
the same dir as REBOL.
Load it, maybe in user.r
ref: load %ref-data.r
Write a func to do what you want (also added to user.r?)
eg: func ['word] [help :word print last select ref word]
Call it as needed
>> eg <
value1 < value2
Returns TRUE if the first value is less than the second value.
< is an op value.
value1 -- (Type: any)
value2 -- (Type: any)
Returns FALSE for all other values. An error will
occur if the values are not of the same datatype. For
string-based datatypes, the sorting order is used for
comparison with character casing ignored (uppercase lowercase).
print "abc" < "abcd"
print 15-June-1999 < 14-June-1999
print 22.214.171.124 < 126.96.36.199
print 1:30 < 2:00
