Added this to my autoexec.bat, which now reads: loadhigh C:\windows\command\ path=%path%;c:\progra~1\tclpro1.4\win32-ix86\bin set PATH="%PATH%;C:\vim\vim57" set REBOL_HOME=C:\REBOL rebooted, went to MS-DOS prompt, and change to c:\rebol then ran: C:\rebol>rebol -wq --do "print {Hello World} quit" | more Intermediate file error during pipe Rats!

Next, I stripped the autoexec.bat down to the rebol_home line only. Rebooted, and no difference. Rats!

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Tried several pipes; no problems!

Finally, did this and it worked the first time! (I had forgotten about the $ for strings in qbasic!! Looks funny now days.) Rats!

It was worth a try. Thanks for your time, Brett. Later, today, I'll try it on my wife's machine. She has a much cleaner and more recent Win98 install. Thanks, again. --Scott Jones
