[REBOL] A bug or a feature?

From: carl::cybercraft::co::nz at: 3-May-2001 20:36

Can someone tell me why I get an error in the second example here...
>> test: [a: text "hello"]
== [a: text "hello"]
>> view layout [panel test 200x50]
That works fine with no errors, but if I use to-block on a string to attempt to produce the same test block, I get this...
>> test: to-block {a: text "hello"}
== [a: text "hello"]
>> view layout [panel test 200x50]
** Script Error: a is not defined in this context ** Where: forever ** Near: set :var new new/var: to-word Now, I've worked out that 'a isn't being set when to-block is used, unlike in the first example, but is that's what's supposed to happen? And if so, how would you convert a string to a block so the 'a: above would be set? -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]
