well, it always starts the easy way and complicates later. All I wanted to say is - that any such stuff without support for indexing, updating databases, sharing/locking, is not practically of much use. And once you decide to reimplement CA-Clipper of FoxPro in Rebol not even having open/skip working, let me know, it will be at least interesting to watch :-) Just kidding - not trying to distract from any such activity ... cheers, -pekr-
