I hope this happens sooner rather than later, because it seems weird that a language is used for scripting, and is aimed to be able to replace perl, has no standard means of formatting text. Formatting text is what most perl programs do. If REBOL really wants to guide perl programmers to the right direction a standard means of text formatting is a must. I thought once that Carl had commented this on the list, but I was unable to find the article. I used slow then so maybe I just had not the patience. -- Jussi Hagman CS in Åbo Akademi University Studentbyn 4 D 33 [juhagman--abo--fi] 20540 Åbo [jhagman--infa--abo--fi] Finland
