Out of those two, I'd say go with the first. a) It's simpler and cleaner (good rule of thumb when REBOLing). b) It's more generic (thus more reusable). Be adviced, you're about to learn about 500 other ways to do it...;-) Cheers! /Lennart Fridén ([lennart--nylen--biz]) The World is not sane so why should I be?
