[REBOL] Why is it not possible to use double quotes within arguments to a rebol

From: Micael::Gullmes::telenor::se at: 1-Sep-2003 15:47

Hi all, I am trying to call a rebolscript from another rebolscript and pass a rebol block as an argument. However it seems as if the double quotes are removed before the args are passed on to system/script/args The same behaviour is seen if you start rebol with the -- option: For example: rebolcmd -- ["string" "string with space" {string with "" }]
>> probe system/script/args
[string string with space {string with }] == "[string string with space {string with }]" Is this a bug or is Rebol designed this way on purpose? Does anyone have a suggestion how to get around this problem? I have tried this using RebolCommand for Windows and Solaris and RebolView for Win, same result everywhere. Brgds /Micael
