Yup. Rebol console on linux sucks. So sad because of the readline resources available. I use emacs, which provides 'comint' or 'inferior process' mode that enables the following: 1)Running rebol *inside* of the emacs editor 2)Sending code from a file directly to the rebol interpreter for evaluating 3)Loading files 4)*AND* writing code on the command-line (when running inside of the interpreter) make use of all of the emacs editing features. The mode is available. I wrote it from scratch and it is tailored to my own needs, but should work for other users and should be easily modifiable. tim -- Binary/unsupported file stripped by Ecartis -- -- Type: image/png -- File: rebol-emacs.png
