[REBOL] Re: system/ports/echo

Hi, Oldes, Looks like it is currently used in the echo command:
>> source echo
echo: func [ "Copies console output to a file." [catch] target [file! none!] ][ if port? system/ports/echo [ close system/ports/echo system/ports/echo: none ] if file? target [ system/ports/echo: throw-on-error [open/write/new/direct target] ] ] I was originally thinking it might be used in serial communications, like setting echo on or off, etc. Maybe it is, but I can find no use that proves this point. For what its worth. Regards, --Scott Jones
