I agree with preserving the position in the value yielded by REVERSE as I think that's the most likely value to be relevant in a larger expression. It would be really interesting to examine a reasonably-sized sample of REBOL scripts to see how often REVERSE is preceded by HEAD. -jn- -- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Joel Neely joelDOTneelyATfedexDOTcom 901-263-4446
