Not REBOL but.... When I'm coding C/C++ I use emacs (death to vi!) which has a minor mode called Hide-Show. Using that I can do things like (pulling some code from a recent project): /** Voltage chart text formatter. * This replaces special "$" codes in the specified format string with * values taken from upsStatus. Please see the switch in the body of the * function for details about which codes are recognised. All unrecognised * codes or other characters are simply copied to the buffer. * * \par Arguments: * \arg \c buffer - Destination buffer. * \arg \c size - number of characters available in buffer (not inc \n). * \arg \c format - Format string to process into buffer. * * \todo Find a way to unify formatVoltText(), formatFreqText() and * formatTempText() to reduce the amount of replication between them (maybe * use varargs and pass the values to replace code with in that way?) */ static void formatVoltText(gchar *buffer, gint size, gchar *format)... If I then shift-middleclick on the function name I can show the body of the function, a shift-middleclick in the function body reduces it to the function name and parameter list followed by "..." again. Is this what you mean?
