[REBOL] Re: how do you read a pdf file?

> Am checking Read with different items over the internet, I'm using view > pro and I only seem to be able to get ahold of text files, I get errors > if I try to read, open, size? Modified? on gif, pdf, and jpg files so > far. > > Have tried Read with various refinements, inclusive binary > > I don't think this is a code error as I am just writing the single liner > read/binary http://www.xml.com/images/logo_tagline.jpg
