Absolutely! I'm under no illusion that the sample code offered was the best algorithm/approach for the problem. That the first version was just leftovers from some benchmarking I had done a while back -- it was just the first fragment of code that came to hand that had some deeply-nested expressions. I assure one and all that I do NOT recommend constructing blocks from right to left! Of course, that sentence betrays that my native/habitual language is Indo-European-based (reading left-to-right) rather than Hebrew or Arabic (reading right-to-left) or ancient Greek (when written in boustrophedon). -jn- -- ; Joel Neely joeldotneelyatfedexdotcom REBOL [] do [ do func [s] [ foreach [a b] s [prin b] ] sort/skip do function [s] [t] [ t: "" foreach [a b] s [repend t [b a]] t ] { | e s m!zauafBpcvekexEohthjJakwLrngohOqrlryRnsctdtiub} 2 ]
