If you write your code as: if 'file = get in info? to-file elt 'type [print elt] it doesn't need parens; also, you never need them if you use prefix operators, such as writing: if equal? get in info? to-file elt 'type 'file [print elt] The problem is that when you write: get in info? to-file elt 'type = 'file REBOL interprets it as: get in info? to-file elt ('type = 'file) HTH, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:
