[REBOL] Re: help

From: whip:cs:unm at: 26-Nov-2000 13:54

What Ladislav says is correct, and this is _NOT_ a bug. This is a pretty fundamental aspect of how REBOL datatypes work. MAKE creates a new datatype and TO converts a datatye. MAKE file! 44 creates a new file! with room for 44 characters, which is very much like: MAKE string! 44 whereas... TO-FILE 44 converts the integer 44 into a file!, which is very much like: TO-STRING 44 The standard way that datatypes are converted to series is that they are FORMed. -jeff
