Having not had occasion to use it in my experiments, I was working on a vague recollection that launching external processes was a /Pro feature. The manual is murky on what 'launch does or what its argument is, but I guess that might work. Which of course would make it easier. My point, mainly, though is that REBOL seems to be fine for this, from a security point of view, as long as you (among other things) run the agents in processes seperate from anything they aren't allowed to mess with. The rest seems like it should be able to be handled using REBOL's usual security features. Chris Dicely
