[REBOL] CORE 2.5.2 Bugs/Enhancements

From: fsievert::uos::de at: 7-May-2002 8:42

Hi! I tested core 2.5.2 right now and like most of the changes you did, thank you! Here is a list of things i still found: --- New Evaluation --- Evalutation is still not very constistent. Maybe you could have a look at http://www.fx5.de/REBOL/hot-values.r (The comments refer to Core 2.5.0, so ignore them) For example:
>> a: first ['a]
== 'a
>> a
== a I would expect == 'a , do you agree? --- Crashing: Foreach/Reduce/Do/next --- And there are still some crashes in REBOL which causes crashes, when REBOL runs bigger scripts for longer time. You can try do http://proton.cl-ki.uni-osnabrueck.de/REBOL/bug-test.r to find them. test2 ... test4 will crash REBOL. --- Bind/In --- Maybe you could allow bind to accept not only word - Values, but lit-word, set-word, too. This already works, but the definition of Bind does not allow it. --> use [a] [a: third :bind repend a/words [any-word!]] In should allow any-word!, too. --> use [a] [a: third :in repend a/word [any-word!]] Enhancement-Request: In should allow to get a word bound not only to objects, but to functions, too. Example: a: func [b] [b: 99] get in :a 'b --- Use/Repeat --- Maybe you will want use to copy/deep it's block argument before binding it (needed for recursive functions) --- FTP Protocol --- FTP-Protocol is broken, it opens a new connection for each access when using ip-addresses. Fix: use [a] [ a: second get in system/schemes/ftp/handler 'open a: next a/connections/all change/only a to-paren compose [form (first a)] ] --- throw-on-error --- Throw on error is not able to handle unset-Return-Value. Fix: throw-on-error: func [ [throw] blk [block!] ][ if error? set/any 'blk try blk [throw :blk] get/any 'blk ]
