Thanks for your detailed reply. I'd be very happy to see IPv6 addresses as built-in datatype. They are (or will soon become), fundamental identifiers on the Internet. You guys will have to write some nifty code to support them, but imagine the joy the rest us will have in writing code like: myIPAddress: make IP! YourIPAddress: make IP! "0::1:2:3:ff" if myIPAddress = YourIPAddress [ print "same!] (Mine and your are the same address in this example, expressed in IPv4 and IPv6 formats). Regards, Colin.
