[REBOL] Enhancement Request - Range! datatype Re:(5)

From: allen:rebolforces at: 21-Aug-2000 16:37

Hi Andrew, I like the use of "-" but I feel it will cause confusion if a negative is used in the range. -1--10 .. does indicate in English text that something has not been left out. But it is confusing if a decimal is used in the range. .1...10 So what other suggestions could we have for the operator? how about? 1to10 -1to-10 .1to.10 Is using n"to"n that different from using n"x"n for pairs? It is immediately obvious that it is a range, ( in English at least). Other ideas?
