that would make probe a little obsure ... probe is meant to show what the code is ... internally. If you want to make a datatype based format print or probe, then user should just implement this: dprobe: func [data][ switch/defsault type?/word [ object! [dump-obj data data] binary! [dump-binary data data] ;--- add you favorite datatypes here--- :-) ][ probe data data ] ] its so easy to do that there is no point in obfuscating probe IMHO... -MAx
