I wrote only in C for many years, than transitioned to rebol, then python and perl. What I'm finding is syntaxes of different languages can inform each other. I now have a user-defined rebol functions 'split and 'chomp and I'm using more abstract data typing in Ansi C. Lately I've been learning SQL for applying DocKimbel's mysql-protocol, and it seems to me that SQL could inform rebol syntax. SQL has a sort of natural-ness to it that 'flows' better than C. As for 'isflatten, it occurs to me that I've been looking for that word for some time now. Thanks Joel! -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]>
