IDE no.. though some might argue EMACS Truly the REBOL interactive shell is your best friend. Also for deeper understanding people usually recommend %anamonitor.r I am not sure if that is the best link for it. Purpose: { To visually examine nested objects/blocks. Examples: monitor monitor system/words monitor svv } Maxim had embedded anamonitor in his super Rebol/View framework called 'Glass'. An easy shortcut opens the monitor with the current window directly in the monitor, ready to debug and probe your work environment. Sweet. But unfortunately the Glass project is in limbo at the moment :-( I use UltraEdit32 on Windows. Its a terrific programmers' editor. With colored syntax highlighting for REBOL and almost all languages. It has built in FTP which makes it a cinch to edit on a remote server. Once a set of remote scripts are open, you just make changes and hit save. Likewise working between local and remote is simple cut'n'paste Before that I used NoteTabPro which is also wonderful. Extremely fast with many unique clever features. ./Jason
