[REBOL] Duplicating blocks

From: chris::starforge::co::uk at: 27-Jun-2001 13:34

Hi, A problem that has been bothering me: bigstring: make string! 50000 read %somefile bigstring anotherstring: copy bigstring Assume there's only 300 characters in somefile. The question is, does copy duplicate the full thing (ie: anotherstring has 50000 characters storage space, of which 300 are used) or does it only copy the characters (ie: anotherstring has 300 chars storage, all of which are in use.) How can I find out how much slack a series has anyway? Chris
