I've been looking at debase too, but as you say, it's buggy. If I were to convert hex characters manually in java (that's where I "come from"), I'd use a switch statement. Any suggestions to how I should do it in rebol? Here's a java sample: switch (character) { case ('0') return "0000" case ('1') return "0001" case ('2') return "0010" (...) case ('d') return "1101" case ('e') return "1110" case ('f') return "1111" } Obviously, this should be done with a one-liner, but since debase is so hard to figure out, I'm willing to do a little more work. Any help greatly appreciated. ~H
