Thanks for your comments. I absolutely agree with you. Vconsole v 0.0.4 is a result of my 3 hours Rebol session so there is a lot of things to do. Unfortunately here is little explanation ;-): -------------------------------try this code(watch out line breaks)----------------------------------------------- cyphre: make object!
