Hi, I keep seeing ' in front of words, I have looked around a bit (in core.pdf, RebolForces.com, other such places) But nowhere is there any explanation that I can find. What exactly does a single quote mean? Thanks!! Ammon

This specifies a literal word. Read up in the core pdf under expressions/words/literal_words. --Ryan Ammon Cooke wrote:

While you are there Ammon, look at the the following code which is in the section that Ryan points to above: video: [ title "Independence Day" length 2:25:24 date 4/july/1996 ] print select video 'title ; Now if you have entered the code above into the rebol command ; line, code the following
== "Independence Day"
== 4-Jul-1996 ; you may find that enlightening. ; also, "Rebol the Official Guide" goes into literal words in ; great depth, and I note that Amazon is offering new copies ; at 50% and used copies for just $11.50. ; I also recommend "Rebol for Dummies" - it's just that ; that's a really significant discount for such a resource. tim
