why not building each time? when using building scripts i have a [do %buidl-and-run.r quit] at the top of of each subscript and the building script deletes that. maybe an extension: #delete [do %buidl-and-run.r quit]? or the editor runs the building script in the directory instead of the actual file. -volker
