REBOL's PARSE command is quite different from REXX's template based
approach; just different goals. REXX's approach falls somewhere
between the two modes PARSE has in REBOL (simple splitting and true
It shouldn't be too hard to write something that emulates the REXX
approach, but I don't know of any that already exist. If REXX
compatibility isn't critical (and I can't imagine that it is), taking
the spirit of a template based parsing function, and making a very
REBOLish version could be very cool.
