[REBOL] Using 'to in parse dialect

From: hallvard::ystad::oops-as::no at: 5-May-2005 2:04

Hello folks I have a parse problem again. Hope someone here can help (Brett?). Heres an example from ws: charset {^A^B^C^D^E^F^G^H^-^/^K^L^M^N^O^P^Q^R^S^T^U^V^W^X^Y^Z^[^\^]^!^_ ^~ } input-string: "fox dog" parse/all input-string [ [any ws "fox"] [any ws "dog"] ] The last parse statement returns 'true. But now, what if we use the 'to: input-string: "let's make a new speciaes: a fox dog" parse/all input-string [ to [any ws "fox"] [any ws "fox"] [any ws "dog"] ] ** Script Error: Invalid argument: any ws fox ** Near: parse/all input-string [to [any ws "fox"] [any ws "fox"] [any ws "dog"]] What did I do wrong? It seems that 'to in the parse dialect is very restrictive as to what may follow. The same applies to 'thru. Please help me someone!
