That's a known problem, the script on the Rebol website doesn't handle View, never has, but I hope it someday will ;-)

Actually it should work, ... at least if you have a _fast_ computer with lot's of memory.

; some seconds of a seeming freeze, ; some more seconds of much text passing by in a hurry 0:00:19 ; on a PIII/900 with 385MB and linux, /View On view system/words is a hell of a beast, let's say it this way, it is BIG, like, really _BIG_. It's because all the View elements are dumped into system/words, and if you do a probe on it, the big object is walked through, creating a really long string on the way, which is then printed. I have heard of computers on which it took nearly an hour, and some others never returned, IIRC. Kind regards, Ingo
