I can't recall whether I mentioned this at the time, but I have discovered that "formating" and 'poking a block is significantly faster than the typical insert loop. i: 10000000 a: make block! i repeat c i [insert tail a c] b: make block! i insert/dup b none i repeat c i [poke b c c] On my PC the times are 5.64s and 3.67s respectively.
