Hello Vonja: I'm not sure just what your end use is, and I'm a bit confused about what you mean by "silent redirect" because to me the term seems to be an oxmoron. So follows two code snippets: one for a redirect: ( in python, but easy to translate to rebol) def js_redirect(S,emit=None): """Compose a javascript redirection.""" R = '<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">window.location="%s"</script>' % S if emit: print R else: return R that should translate to something like (untested) reb-redirect: func[URL][print rejoin[{<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">window.location="} URL {</script>}] But if you were doing something like a "silent get url" - like the silentposturl method used by credit card authorizers, as an example - here's an idea employing the rebol command line and another script on my desktop:
>> res: read ;;Capturing the output from the script in the 'res variable suppresses any ;;output and if I look at baker.dbg (the debug log for baker.r), I see that both the 'execute' path part and the 'task' name/value pair have been logged. Does either of these help? regards tim
