Hi, everybody I want to know wich is the difference between: some-port/awake: :some-func append system/ports/wait-list some-port and forever [ request: wait [some-port] some-func request ] or if one of them is incorrect thanks to all Cesar

Both methods are equal here. But 'awake is handled on every wait, your own loop only on its own wait. 'view does its own wait, and then 'awake is handled, your own wait not. (its overlayd with 'views wait) (you can use 'view/new of course). -Volker On Mon, 6 Dec 2004 18:19:26 -0300, Cesar Chavez <[rebol--ccsducto--com--ar]> wrote:

Slightly related... There is a function called Dispatch that you might to use or at look at its source. Dispatch wait on a block of ports and as events happen, dispatches your port handler Cheers, Allen K
