Hi, just to throw in my 0.02, did you had a look at the C++ STL library? Especially the concepts of iterators, algorithms, functonids, predicates etc. seem to be very similar to what you are doing here. IIRC I brought up the idea to use such "generic concepts" with Rebol long long ago. IMO this would lead to a very cute generic Rebol library like the STL is for C++. Robert
