[REBOL] an ugly solution to a newbie problem!
From: caw::cs::mu::oz::au at: 22-May-2001 4:47
I had previously asked how to do this:
>listen-port: open/lines tcp://:server:8000
>This (obviously) doesn't work...what I want to get is
>listen-port: open/lines tcp://machine-1:8000
>How to you get the value of a word "in-the-middle" of an expression?
Crass experimentation lead to :
s: join (join "tcp://" :server) ":8000"
listen-port: open/lines (do :s)
:s has type? string! which wont be accepted in open
but (do :s) has type? url!
and it works...
but the MUST be a more elegant way. I'd be grateful for help!
