Yes, but how well is the question. This would have hardcoded into REBOL to be worthwhile, although only minor changes. It would be a good deal thinner than most other programming languages, but at least provide a thin layer of protection. I am sure RT has the scheme already, but it is my guess that they want to keep things open source for the time being. Why? For one it makes REBOL is easier to learn when you can look at other peoples code. Another big point is its also simpler to deal with only text REBOL, instead of the interoperability issues that would be desired with both types out there. --Ryan Ryan Cole Programmer Analyst 707-468-5400 The Tao that can be expressed is not the eternal Tao. -Lao Tzu
