I have Rebol View 184.108.40.206.1 loaded. I am trying some scripts from the cookbook of code website. One of the programs uses a function from Core 220.127.116.11.1. I found this and downloaded the code. My understanding of View, is that it comes with Core built in. My question is how to replace that with the new Core I downloaded? Would someone please set me on the right track. Thanks for the help. Lee

Rebol/View 1.2.1 is.. wow. Very old. I'm using 1.2.47, which is from almost a year ago. Newer versions can be found under the Alphas/Betas section at http://www.rebol.net/ Although, it seems that currently there's a big project underway to produce a new "stable" version (Hence all the 1.2.100+ releases in so short a time) But the alphas/betas seem stable enough for my uses (^.-)

Me too. I have systems I wrote when 1.2.1 was the best thing around. There is absolutely no business reason for the people using those systems to interrupt their workflow to install any other version. It works, and we're all happy.

Don't think you can. It's too integrated for that. But you can lift some of the functionality. If a function is coded as a mezzanine, then you can copy the source and put it in the user.r file for the older version of REBOL. The function is then automatically available whenever you start 1.2.1 (I'm using "can" in that paragraph as in "physically possible." License conditions may restrict what is permitted). Sunanda.

That's right, Rebol/View = Core + View. There is no tool to merge a newer Core into an old View executable, so the only way is to get a newer Rebol/View with the new Core built into it. Have a look here: http://www.rebol.net/builds/031/ Or use the "copy the source" trick. Anton.
