[REBOL] Re: CORE experimental 2.4.39

From: petr:krenzelok:trz:cz at: 23-Nov-2000 7:18

Whooo ho, Jeff, you are the messenger of some progress being taken even in area of core technology development :-) Is REBOL/Express really so great you folks are so silent last weeks? :-) [jeff--rebol--net] wrote:

Does it mean they could be removed later? Or do you mean just change of their behavior? What are these functions good for, please? :-) I tried 'get-on upon my mailbox port, but it does seem to want different kind of parameter .... I was not succesfull even with file port: ->> file: open %novy.txt ->> get-modes file ** Script Error: get-modes expected modes argument of type: word block ** Near: get-modes file

And - what does this one mean? :-)

is the number of slashes correct? There seem to be always something to improve :-) Now when above changes will find it's way into REBOL/View? :-) Very nice, RT, thanks for the update! Now how about other suggested and really usefull additions as parser improvement, etc? -pekr-
