Hi, there are a zillion of different "standards" out there. I know some of them and most of them are much to complicate without being very useful. A lot initiatives try to solve all problems instead of focusing on the relevant things.

It's OK to take some of the ideas. IMO we don't need to create portable definitions as I'm just interested in the Rebol part, if others want to use these too, well let them convert the Rebol datatypes.

Thanks for the tip, never heard about it. I would like to see a simple approach to get things working fast, get a feeling for the whole process, and maybe start over again with the experience made. There won't be to much work lost. Robert
