Me too. :-D Does anyone know if "to" in languages other than English, means something different from "to" in English? How about in: Italian German Gaelic German Greek Spanish Geek ;-) As I think that's all the languages with A"to"Z... <- Which leads me into thinking, what about characters and strings? Like: r: "aaa"to"zzz" r: "aaa"-"zzz" r: "aaa".."zzz" r: #"A"to#"Z" I think for strings and characters, the "-" is nicer, as it's visually clearer. So, I'd really, really like all three ["to" "-" ".."] as alternative indicators for the 'range! datatype. Andrew Martin Caution: Prone to sudden fits of inspiration... <- So where does "..." fit in Rebol? :-) ICQ: 26227169
