[REBOL] Problem with try [ open/direct/binary tcp://... ] Re:(8)

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 3-Oct-2000 7:22

It appears that using a block as the second argument, when the first argument is of any-string! type, causes the contents of the block be treated as strings.
>> join #{} ['foo 123 :fum]
== #{666F6F3132333F66756E6374696F6E3F}
>> to-string join #{} ['foo 123 :fum]
== "foo123?function?" [giesse--dsiaq1--ing--univaq--it] wrote:

Do you mean "shouldn't" in the sense of 1) "contradicts the official specification", or 2) "doesn't do what I expected", or 3) "doesn't seem to me to do The Right Thing"? Please understand, I'm not criticizing your remark! It's just that option (1) requires that there BE an accessible specification. If there is one which I've overlooked, I'll be VERY grateful if you will tell me where it is (and it may very well be Carl's massive tome of yesterday evening -- I just haven't finished reading it!) Of course, I generally hold your experienced expectations -- as in (2) -- or your good taste in programming -- as in (3) -- in very high regard! -jn-
