[REBOL] Re: Quote character replacement

From: rgaither:triad:rr at: 26-Feb-2001 12:37

Hi All,

Here is my first run at a function to change quotes to braces to manage long strings properly. REBOL [ Title: "Change quotes to braces" Author: "Rod Gaither" File: %fixquotes.r Date: 26-Feb-2001 Purpose: {Test utility function to prepare .df file.} Category: [script util text 2] ] fix-quotes: func [in-string [string!] /local new-string in-quote?] [ new-string: make string! length? in-string in-quote?: false foreach char in-string [ either char = #"^(22)" [ either in-quote? [ append new-string #"^}" ][ append new-string #"^{" ] in-quote?: not in-quote? ][ append new-string char ] ] return new-string ] Rather plain and inefficient, waiting for much better option! :-) FWIW, Rod.
