Yep, me too "I've been having a heck of a time reverse-engineering a lot of what VID layouts do" or studying how Carl codes conference.r (very useful). I'm learning a lot of tricks, but... 1. I miss a handy and exhaustive VID reference, really; 2. I miss a guide that helps me to build the right "/View context" in my mind. Actually, I spend more time trying to find somewhere the complete syntax of the various items than designing and coding my REBOL applications. But I consider myself a positive man, so I keep myself happy thinking about the near future, when we'll have a lot of guides and we'll write code with REBOL in no time :-) Obviously, if this "near future" could be next monday I'be happier... oh, and the same day I would like to find /View for Mac (obviously at least in five trendy colors) and /View/Runtime and /Apache and new skins for /Express and... am I asking too much? :-) -- Paolo Russo [pa--russo--perd--com] _________________ PERD s.r.l.
