[REBOL] Re: XML support in Rebol

From: pwawood:mango:my at: 21-Dec-2004 10:13

Hi Bryan As far as I can tell by inspecting the source of parse-xml, it is a mezzanine. The point being that it is written in standard Rebol. You can preserve it's current functionality indefinitely by copying the source and creating your own parse-xml-bryan. You would of course also have to copy the underlying xml-language (dialect?) to xml-language-bryan as well. The only issue from there on would be if RT changed the behaviour of a "native" (ie written in C) word or a datatype. So RT could bring parse-xml up-to-date and you could still retain the current behaviour. By the way, why don't you really use Rebol any more? Regards Peter
