[REBOL] Re: Shutting off parse features

From: gscottjones::mchsi::com at: 8-Mar-2002 15:43

parse will remove the comma, and the semi... and takes anything within quotes as a single value.
> Sometimes I just want to parse spaces so we get... > ["Hello" "world," "this" "to" "is" "an" "example;"]
You make a good point, and as far as I can there is no easy way to do this without using a "rule". Here is a quick and dirty work-around, in case it proves useful for a specific problem: a: {Hello world, "this to" is an example;} parse/all trim/with a {"} " " ; yields ["Hello" "world," "this" "to" "is" "an" "example;"] --Scott Jones
