....once upon a time I did that, when I was learning REBOL. I did this with a colleague of mine and the reference model could be captured in a much better name than REBOL: pointer++ That's what is. From pointer++ to binding is just a small step ;-) And then you realize that what's great about REBOL is not that you can do all this. That you can do it with such a small executable on so many platforms and with such speed, *that* is amazing. --Maarten
