[REBOL] Using "repeat" in write/append/lines

From: ml::sproingle::com at: 4-May-2004 14:49

I am adding lines to a text file and it is one of those things that I want to print out as many asterisks as is listed in a variable to make a simple graph. So here is the effect I am after: 2pm : **** 3pm : ** 4pm : ********* The thing is how do I "print" those asterisks when I am outputting to file. I don't know what to put in the repeat function. When trying out this on the console, I would try a command like: write/append/lines %output.txt repeat i 10 ["*"] But instead of ********** in the appended line I would get a single * Can anyone help?
