That's a shame... so what to do? Python I know is able to quickly bootstrap interesting project developments in two ways and corss-breeding them: A. Design/Python-DOWN First design+code in python, then optimize selectively crucial sections in C to get to reach acceptable perfromance. Often these optimizations are small but very well aimed. B. Source/Library-UP Find an existing library, usually open-source, and write Python API for it, in the process learning hands-on about it the design. Later perhaps develop Python native version. For example, building a cool integrated editor using Scintilla How does REBOL work in regard to using such libraries? ./Jason
