[REBOL] Re: anamonitor 2.0.0 - load-thru
From: antonr::iinet::net::au at: 5-Mar-2003 15:44
load-thru uses load, which ignores the rebol
header and just gives you the data.
I think this could be so that the "main" script
header is not destroyed. Ok, we started from
the console, so the header was none anyway, but
you can imagine doing a script that then loads some
data file. You wouldn't want the calling script's
header overwritten by the unimportant data file.
I guess load-thru is more for data than scripts.
do knows how to load, including the header, but
it doesn't know how to load-thru the public cache.
(I remember we used to have do-thru.)
So if we
do load-thru url
then we are loading twice, but the first load
has stripped the header.
