I don't know if anything else can be known about the file in Rebol by default, maybe using some special set/get-modes, but I looked at how dir? function works ... try e.g. following: ble: make port! %user.r query ble probe ble .... as you can see, the file info is load in the port structure. Maybe some /state item could be filled in future by platform dependant info, if not available already? You will probably need to try some Win32 API functions to achieve what you described ... -pekr-
