Hi all ~ Given a block of strings as in names: [ =93Joe=94 =93Mary=94 =93Wilbur=94 ] and an object template template: make object! [ count: 0 units: [] ] How do I create an object for each of the names in the names block so that I may do probe Joe/count or probe Mary/units TIA, Kai

I tried the following and it seems that it worked :
>> foreach name names [set to-word name :template] >> help joe
JOE is an object of value: count integer! 0 units block! length: 0
>> help Mary
MARY is an object of value: count integer! 0 units block! length: 0
>> Wilbur/count

In that case, all 3 names point at the same object:
>> names: [ "Joe" "Mary" "Wilbur" ]
== ["Joe" "Mary" "Wilbur"]
>> template: make object! [ count: 0 units: [] ] >> foreach name names [set to-word name :template] >> ? Joe
JOE is an object of value: count integer! 0 units block! length: 0
>> Joe/count: 4
== 4
>> Mary/count
== 4 What you want is this: foreach name names [set to-word name make template []] Keep in mind that changing count above like I did also changed the object that template pointed to, so it has to be remade/reset before doing the new foreach loop.
