Hi Gabriele, I suspect the lack of response to my request indicates just how few of us ever go near Trace after the first encounter. I'm sure we've all got our little toolkit of debugging toys. The simplest one I have is in my USER.R.... debugprint: :print ....so I can search code later for all Print statements that exist only for debugging. I think it is a shame that Rebol does not have a better set of debugging tools. Perhaps we could open this thread out....Anyone else got little scripts or tricks they use for debugging that they'd like to share? --Colin
