That sort of thing will only work with cgi data - I need to be able to literally pipe in a file, ie: my script needs to be able to handle (contrived example time..) cat an_email | myscript.r An email forwarder on my site does: [address--starforge--co--uk] -> |/home/starforg/..../scgi-bin/scriptname.r which does basically the same thing - emails sent to [address--starforge] are piped into the rebol script. Using copy would work fine (aside from security implications) if it didn't stick each line in a separate string. :/ Chris -- New sig in the works Explorer2260, Designer and Coder -- Crash programs fail because they are based on the theory that, with nine women pregnant, you can get a baby a month. -- Wernher von Braun
