Thank you very much, Gregg. I found an interesting "feature" in launch : it allows Rebol/Core to launch an external program, for example :
>> a: system/options/boot >> rename system/options/boot %tmp >> copy %my_program a >> launch "my-args" >> delete %my_program >> rename %tmp a
Can overwriting LAUNCH be a protection ?
