You go that right.

I am impressed with the quality of your work and what was accomplished, by a non-pro, in that short amount of time.

I am still not sure what happened when I entered the q-plot.r address into GOTO. While the desktop was "connected", the R logo cycled, but nothing else seemed to happen. The file may have d/led somewhere, but I got no indication of that.

The docs & examples look great. I must learn how to put docs together like this. Some examples have a small problem, though. A few bars are plotted beyond the edge of the window or overlap other bars.

I had a similar problem getting this file, too. There was desktop activity, but nothing opened. I'll have to check some REBOL directories, in the meantime. I checked the main script library, but it was not listed there, AFAIK. I am busy with some other projects, but I will get back to plotting, ASAP, now that I have a tool. Stock candlesticks are most interesting to me, but other plot styles are also needed. I look forward to using your dialect. In the meantime, if you could enlighten me as to how to get get-stock.r & q-plot.r or just send me the files, I'd appreciate it. Thanks for your considerable efforts, Donald Dalley
