What are your intentions? Please give us a more specific example. Just quickly, this works: sample: "he l lo-" parse/all sample [copy text [[to "-" "-"] | to end] (print text)] I added another hyphen so it gets eaten, otherwise [to "-"] leaves it hanging and parse won't quite finish. Anton.

It is indeed incorrect because you can not use 'to on blocks. Maybe in a future version of rebol?
