[REBOL] Re: Limiting Serie sizes (native!)

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 14-Aug-2003 8:45

Hi Carl, crc> It would be possible for there to be a way to limit a series on a per series crc> basis, although it is interesting to think about the methods of such a function -- crc> in other words, you have to have a way to set, get, and change the limits on crc> a per series basis -- sort of like set-modes does for ports. Give your newlines example, I can see this is something requiring careful consideration. There are times where I'd like easy control over molded or saved formats (e.g. MOLD produces a nice format for object spec blocks, but then you have to strip the "make object!" part if you only want the block), but it's not a killer issue. Once you have modes available for blocks, then do you need to offer a way to set defaults, so all blocks in your app can use a particular set of modes without having to set them individually? What other modes might there be and how would they simplify our lives or let us do things we can't do now? Those would be my questions. -- Gregg
