[REBOL] Re: RFC: require-files block in the Rebol header

REBOL checks the Needs header but I don't know what all the allowable formats are. I do know you can get it to check the product and version at least, but it does not seem to check files. For example, try using Core to DO a file that contains this: REBOL [ Needs: [view] ] print "hello" This Needs: [core 2.5.3] and this Needs: 2.5.3 also work. They seem to be minimum requirements, but I reckon it could be useful to be able to specify a maximum version too. Regards, Brett.
