[REBOL] Re: /only refinement for save

From: atruter:labyrinth:au at: 14-Aug-2003 12:55

Hi Gregg

You may want LOAD to treat [1] as a block as opposed to (LOAD/ALL) a block within a block.

The /all refinement is already used by save and mold and relates to serialized format. The /all refinement of load is the logical complement to /only. I can see why it was named /all (as it is the opposite of /only in some respects) but it is a different /all than used elsewhere (or in REBOL parlance, it is used in a different context ;) ).
