thanks for asking. Yes please: -- Much deeper stack -- why not limited to available memory or user setting? 2000-odd just isn't enough for some algorithms. -- Bignums -- they are in there somewhere, you see it on the start-up messages. But I want to work with them. --Better error messages. The sort of thing you get now .... ** Math Error: Attempt to divide by zero ** Near: 10 / length? a ....just ain't precise enough when I'm trying to debug something live that could be anywhere in a chain of half-a-dozen called modules. -- Better tracing for debugging. I'd like something like.... trace/word 'write ....that would give me a trace whenever the word 'write was accessed. Of course, it should work for any word including user-defined ones: trace/word 'line-count would give me a hit on: line-count: line-count + 1 and: if line-count > 66 Sunanda.
