Thanks. I notice that in other cases, different datatypes containing the "same" data _are_ treated as equal, even though it's not documented:
>> replace a: [1 56 #"w" 'g] "w" "wsfg"
== [1 56 #"w" 'g] HELP REPLACE doesn't indicate that #"w" and "w" will be treated as being the same thing in this case. Regards, Hallvard PS to Ladislav et al.: I didn't learn much from studying my mail server log. I still cannot understand why I do not get any messages from the list. Hope the problem will be fixed soon, I really miss all this email (would you believe it?). Contrary to what Carl evangelizes, I find email to be a very useful and practical way of communicating.
