[REBOL] Re: Eating resources equals probing BIG blocks?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 13-Aug-2003 20:08

Hi Norman, R> Create a block that contains between 10000 and 50000 blocks R> then do a probe on the block...(using the core shell, not from a script!) I guess my first question is why you would PROBE a block that large; that much data isn't too useful in the console. R> What happens during a Probe? or does it depend whats inside the block? R> (In my case the block contains simple copies of open ports) PROBE (you can look at the source), MOLDs the data, so there may be something about structures that huge being MOLDed that causes a problem. Is there anything in the blocks? Is the nesting just one level deep? Are there any circular references? The last issue would be a problem. -- Gregg
