Hi Anton, At 01:22 AM 4/20/2002 +1000, you wrote:

That I do for all my scripts, except that I generally remove their contents for my posts to keep from distracting from the code itself. But I guess I should leave at least the purpose field there. Is there any reason to post all the fields? To try to maintain consistency, I have a template file named header with as much of the info as possible already filled in which I insert when I begin each script. Here it is (I suspect that there is more even to these headers than I realize. Are there some advanced purposes for the headers?): REBOL [ Title: "" Date: 1-Jan-2002 Version: 1.0.0 ; majorv.minorv.status ; status: 0 = unfinished; 1 = testing; 2 = stable File: % Author: "Louis A.

I don't remember who, but they help. Louis

For your script, if you probe system/script/header, you should see system/script/header/version

Hi Jason, << Q2: How do access headers within another REBOL script? >> You need to LOAD it AFAIK. You can use the /header refinement and then the header will be the first value. scr: load/header %test.r hdr: scr/1 You could also use the /all refinement and then make the header object yourself. scr: load/allest.r hdr: make object! scr/rebol Maybe someone else has a better way. --Gregg
