[REBOL] Rebol Tech, please answer. Two questions. Re:(8)

From: rebol:techscribe at: 12-Sep-2000 14:09

Hi Jeff, why not include an optional key mapping for system/ports/input? Perhaps system/ports/input/state/misc could be used for this, if it is not already being used for something else? Then the input of Umlaut characters could be replaced by brackets before they are passed to REBOL for processing and to the console output. At 08:14 AM 9/12/00 -0700, you wrote:
