[REBOL] Re: replace

I was trying to use 'try on a block containing a 'replace statement and
couldn't understand why it would not return an error when trying to replace
a string that doesn't exist. I guess 'replace simply doesn't error out. Why
not? I think it should.

Are you are referring to the fact that the string you specified to
replace, "fabulous", is not in the main string "foobar"? Or that you are

In the first case, no search/replace tool I've used has complained (esp
given an error) that zero replaces were made.

>> a: "foobar"
>> c: "fabulous"
>> replace a c c
