Hi Greg: I've already got that functionality: ;; ------------------------------------------------------------------- load-with-path 'file: 'do file, if not already loaded, and not found in local folder search a block of paths. ;; ------------------------------------------------------------------- import 'word: converts 'word to %file + .r and calls load-with-path ;; ------------------------------------------------------------------- modules {space-delimited words in string} - multiple functionality also leverages load-with-path and has built-in debugging. One could put a keywork into the docstring and then I could look for a keyword in third :pick ..... that is, parse the docstring. thanks tim -- Tim Johnson <> Palmer, Alaska, USA
