Unfortunately, this approach doesn't seem to work on the "^^" operator.

** Script Error: ^ has no value ** Near: op: get to-get-word "^^" I can however use :power. Shouldn't there be a consistent way to convert all operators from string to get-word? I am also trying to inject parentheses without much success. Is this even possible? I've tried: x: '( x: get to-get-word "(" x: :( Each attempt failed. Thanks, Scott.
