Ah, yes, I agree entirely. Just like my bar-chart script. (: There's the Catch 22 of being told "The script library is one of the best ways to learn REBOL" when you can't understand a script until you have a reasonable understanding of REBOL to begin with... As to non-commented scripts. Well, I find code easier to write than describe, which is quite common I think. The "HowTo"s on RT's website are well done though. It's just there's not enough of them, let alone ones for View and VID. -- Carl Read
