Is there a limit in the size of the user.r file? John

I'm almost scared of asking why you need to know how LARGE the user.r file can be... I guess you want to include skins and reused codes... I have added a few things in it but I always sourced other files instead of trying to put all the stuff right in the file.. its easier to manage... its also easier to handle when you've got more than one user on the sytem, so instead of updating all the code in the user.r, everyone has the same user.r and uses the latest stuff. for steel, the only thing I added to my user.r is a do load to the file which defines the open-library function. then I use it to open whatever module I need (instead of loading all of them). my two cents. -max

Sounds good, but... I am sharing 1600 lines of library code that is used by over 100 files. I can make a change in one file, no need to replicate the process every time I make a change. John
