[REBOL] Re: Bug! Rebol's parsing of urls is incorrect.

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 9-Feb-2001 16:36

Hey Andrew, I am not so quick to call these bugs myself. You do bring up some interesting points though on rebol's data validation capability. To say that is not a URL at all, is a stretch from my perspective. What about 23'12'67? Is that not a number? Maybe 'type? should be as loose as possible, allowing for the greatest flexibility on its use? A seperate pickier and slower data validation function could be used to say that something is not ready for the outside world. After all, 'type?'s docs just say "Returns a value's datatype," no mention of validity. What do you think? --Ryan Andrew Martin wrote:
