Because there's none to give. (When REBOL is first launched, as in
your example below.) Query-strings are used on servers to catch the
information added to the end of URLs, such as...
There, the "q=rebol" after the "?" is the query-string. If the Google
website was using REBOL, "search" would be the script-name and each
time it was run when someone did a search
system/options/cgi/query-string would be loaded with what follows the
So, as far as I know, (I could be wrong - I'm no CGI expert),
query-strings are only useful when REBOL is running on a server.
If however you knew all that, are running REBOL on a server and still
are having problems, then a fuller explanation of your problem is
