Hi, Brett. You wrote:

function is creating an arbitrary maximum input capacity. For the example code, yes. In my Rebol/Wiki, where it works well, I use: Query: make string! 2 + Length: to-integer Rebol/options/cgi/content-length read-io Rebol/ports/input Query Length and so I know the length needed.

be avoided where possible because it is low level. In this case I'm pretty sure it can't be avoided - but hopefully some will up date my knowledge if I'm incorrect on this. :^) Let's hope there's something better soon. It's not very nice script at the moment. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
