[REBOL] parse or Re:(7)

From: rryost:home at: 21-Sep-2000 12:05

Word wrapping in word processors and even email editors makes the definition of PARAGRAPH given below by Joel questionable, IMHO. Thinking about it, I recognize the start of a new paragraph in literature by the presence of a blank or empty line. Thus the sequence of two "new line" control characters would signal the start of a new PARAGRAPH. I think this is beyond the scope of the simple-parse approach. The more complex rule based functional approach developed in this thread by others is required. I guess the person trying to solve this paragraph parse problem is in the best position to define what he means by "paragraph". As I recall the original problem, paragraphs *were* defined "according to Joel". .Russell [rryost--home--com]
