You be the judge! ............. when you 'make an 'object!, all strings, blocks and functions are copied. that allows for example in 'layout : box with[append init[my-inits]] without destroying the original in box. also blocks, like functions, are rebound. so [make child-proto []] gives a copy of 'dataref, not the original. but objects are not copied, so the 'face/feel are all the same after [make face[]]. .................. That's why lot of people are asking RT for adding something like 'clone or 'make/deep ;-) Or should it be a default Rebol's behaviour when working with objects? Regards, Cyphre
