Joel Thanks very much. Your explanation and the posts which followed were just what I was hoping for. So now let me ask an even more basic [FA] question: What is happening, what is the real meaning of someblock: [] What is going on when I call it within a function and then call the function repeatedly [when the previous values remain]. ie: why do I _really_ need clear or copy? Would like to see more helpful doc lookups for : and []

[] is a block
>> ? clear
USAGE: CLEAR series DESCRIPTION: Removes all values from the current index to the tail. Returns at tail. CLEAR is an action value. ARGUMENTS: series -- (Type: series port none) thanks ./Jason
