If you design automatic evaluation (selection) of your random scripts, mate the better random programs with each other, then you have essentially done the Genetic Programming method (Koza 1990) This could be much faster than human evalution of the random scripts on this list. ;-) Rebol is uniquely suited for Genetic Programming, because it almost never crashes bad with wayward code, (and can be tested with try, anyway) Essentially Genetic Programming is a search for a solution, and uses inductive logic to reach a final design, which runs counter-intuitive to most programmer types who are trained to try to use deductive logic. Anywho, thanks for the one liner. Mutate fast, Steve Shireman Your brain may no longer be the boss Firesign Theatre
