[REBOL] Re: Testing if a string is an integer?

From: johnkenyon:ibm at: 11-Dec-2000 10:30

Gabriele and Garold, Questions like this would be helped if we had a way of adding help to keywords in a parse dialect. Anyone any ideas of a clean way of doing this? Thoughts? Cheers, John # Hello Garold! On 09-Dic-00, you wrote: GJ> The only answer I have is that 'some is recognized only by GJ> the parse dialect and not by REBOL: directly, and 'parse is a GJ> native! word. That is correct. SOME is a keyword in PARSE's dialect. GJ> A legal REBOL integer is a bit more complicated (FWIW): Yup. But I think someone was asking for how to detect if a string only contains digits. To test if a string is a valid REBOL integer, you can just do: integer? try [load string] Regards, Gabriele.
