Hi Terrence, Not sure why you feel that they are resistant. join/with and rejoin/with etc sugestions have been added to the enhancement database. ( /with is a more consistent REBOL term, than sepchar. see 'open, 'write and 'trim for examples) Contact me off list if you would like a copy of that feedback email. Cheers, Allen K
