Hi, that's right but with a startup-script it should be OK.

Not quite. For Rebol you would get a dialect for database activity, queries etc. The engine is just for doing the hard work. I don't want to implement a SQL parser there ;-)). The engine can search on b*-trees etc. even the query optimizer can be done in Rebol if you want.

This is a RDBMS... I don't want to use a RDBMS concept, the engine should be much more Rebol coupled. Robert
