There has to be an association in the operating system between files with the extension ".r" and the Rebol interpreter. With this association, the iMac operating system will automatically launch Rebol and "give it" the file that's been double clicked on. The association is usually created when Rebol/View is installed, but not for Rebol/Core. Perhaps you could try installing Rebol/View on your iMac? I hope that helps! Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
