i decided to get the `official guide' instead of the dummies book... it's so-so at teaching rebol, i'll be able to live with it. i was mostly disappointed in the lack of a reference. i was able to get most of the keywords by typing `what' in rebol/core /view, etc., so i could build my own syntax for the two editors i use. but so far i haven't been able to get the built in refinements to add to the syntax highlighting... -- *---------------------------------------- | | | |remove myspleen to email | *-----------------------
