> Orthogonality: A measure of how accurately a system's axes maintain a 90
degrees relationship among them Squareness. Everything works the same way no matter what combination is done. In real life a knife is used to cut with, a screwdriver is used to turn screws. In Rebol, 'insert puts things into series, while 'remove removes a thing from a series for all datatypes. So too 'make's second argument determines the space allocated for the new datatype, for all datatypes. I think that 'make should have a refinement called /size, /reserve or /space and that there shouldn't be a second argument for suggested size. For example: make string! returns a zero length string. While: make/reserve string! 96 returns a string with space for 96 characters, before needing to be expanded. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
