[REBOL] Re: Formatting a display line

No, just suffering from an overuse of COBOL... :) :D
Try adding square brackets around the "integer!" function argument
data-type specifier in 'ADD-FILLER. For example:
ADD-FILLER: func [
"Add a specified number of blanks to FORMATTED-LINE"
PRINT ["NOW WE WILL ADD " SPACE-COUNT " SPACES"]
loop SPACE-COUNT [
append FORMATTED-LINE " " ;;
PRINT ["FORMATTED LINE IS " LENGTH? FORMATTED-LINE
Here's how I'd do the job:
print map DATA-SELECTED func [Line [block!]] [
map Line func [Item] [
pad form Item 9
Of course that does involve using my 'map and 'pad functions, and
assumes the same horizontal spacing per item in each line.
