Now i get it. The confusing point is then, you put s in a series. that leads to the conclusion a series in a series is different. but you mean: a: [] b: a c: b d: reduce[c] now a, b, c and d/1 reference the same block and the words contain the same bits, but the bits are on different memory-locations. they "mean" the same, but they are not the same. i was using "same" in the meaning-sense. and then skipping sticks with the series, but is a bit diffent, so different for the 'same? - function. while an exact copy is same in the 'same? - sense. so i thought you want to demo that and forgot the assignment. sorry ;) -- -Volker Any problem in computer science can be solved with another layer of indirection.
