Out of the box no, but Christopher Ross-Gill has a beautiful form-date.r posted to Lots of options. And in my humble opinion, inline with the model used by other lingos; an external includeable feature as simple to get at as do Umm, not that a new user (or even oldtimers) would have any clues to do such a thing, but it is there. But I also agree. Some things in REBOL are just not quite right, out of the box. Lack of simple to use zero padding has always gotten under my skin. I'll be pushing for the current FORMAT R3 mezzanine for R2.7.7 (perhaps with a different name - PAD or ALIGN or JIGGLE or somesuch - until an actual FORMAT dialect is built up). Cheers, Brian
