[REBOL] Re: Formatting a display line

Looks to me you've simply need to change the parameter definition for ADD-FILLER. that line: SPACE-COUNT integer! should be SPACE-COUNT [integer!] Written with the [] it means the function takes one parameter, that must be an integer. Without the [] it looks like the interpreter is assuming ADD-FILLER takes two parameters. That's eating up your lines of code in ways you didn't expect -- hence that strange message if you uncomment a line. Fix that, and I think all the problems go away. Nice to see another (in my case ex) COBOLer having a go at REBOL, Sunanda.
