[REBOL] Re: Script arguments from console?

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 18-Sep-2001 9:44

Hey Robert, they are two different animals. Script/args are loaded rebol code, wherareas command line args are just strings. It would'nt make much sense to force the loading of command line args, since some of those may not necessarilly make sense to rebol when loaded. Forcing script args to strings would work, but you must keep in mind the args come from two entirely different worlds, both of which have entirely different ways and standards of communicating. Actually, I hardly see a use for 'do/args, but I would be willing to bet that Carl has some grandiose plan for its use not yet quite appearent to us. --Ryan Robert M. Muench wrote:
