[REBOL] Re: Merging cells from two lines

From: arolls::bigpond::net::au at: 25-Aug-2001 15:58

You should combine the two lines, then convert the tabs to html as you have done already. Combining the lines: You need to read two lines at a time. (I am assuming each line is separated by a newline). ;block: read/lines %file.txt ; gives you a block of strings ;example block block: ["MMEA^-LAMA^-GUAD^-GUAD" "SHER^-BATT^-CONG^-WMCA"] foreach [s1 s2] block [ ;print [s1 s2] ; split by whitespace (includes tab) and return a block b1: parse s1 "" b2: parse s2 "" ; combine s1 and s2 s: copy "" repeat n length? b1 [ append s reduce [b1/:n " " b2/:n tab] ] probe s: copy/part s back tail s ; chop off last tab ; now perform your conversion of tabs to html as below ]
