All of the above is more reason to use vim (or some other equivalent editor) that does syntax coloring. My normal "development environment" for REBOL is one or more vim windows (or terminal windows with vi[m] running in it/them, depending on platform) and a REBOL console. The edit/test cycle simply toggles between windows, and the syntax coloring is always there (without the need to run some utility to get a static view of the code that's outdated with the next editor keystroke). -jn- -- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Joel Neely joelDOTneelyATfedexDOTcom 901-263-4446 Enron Accountingg in a Nutshell: 1c=$0.01=($0.10)**2=(10c)**2=100c=$1
