[REBOL] Re: Tell me what "data" is here

From: dhsunanda:gm:ail at: 28-Aug-2010 9:56

It's a word in the LAYOUT dialect that says the data being provided to the LIST is in a block: The word is perhaps redundant in that it looks like it could be inferred from context. But perhaps not -- perhaps it acts to avoid some possible ambiguities when parsing the LAYOUT dialect. Because it is a word in the LAYOUT dialect, you won't find it with HELP -- any more than you'd find ACROSS or TEXT. Perhaps HELP should be more helpful for built-in dialects like LAYOUT. Sunanda.
