Ahh, now I get it.

Ha! You presume I can do this?! Now, THAT's funny! ;^)

No, not at all. Although I have seen references on the list about something called "Glass", until a few seconds ago, I had no idea what it is or what it does. I don't think I am the only one on the ML who doesn't know that, either.

No, I mean that most of the program samples that I saw on the REBOL site have no comments at all in their code, to document what *exactly* is going on. This makes it somewhat more difficult to learn by example. I can't write like that. Some programs don't need explaining, obviously; some parts, at least, do.

It's my training wheels that slow me down!

I'm sure it will. I'll have a look at it ASAP. Thanks! -- ---===///||| Donald Dalley |||\\\===--- The World of AmiBroker Support UIN/ICQ#: 65203020
