[REBOL] Re: Parsing out strings

in a related topic, I'd like to restate/comment something said this week..
in rebol, there are usually very different ways to achieve the same goals. not just
in the functions to use, but in the raw in-code ideology, of how to plug the outputs
of all of the fancy series handlers.
Some will optimise for code readability and sharability, others will concentrate on raw
speed, and yet other solutions will tend to concentrate on code size and "denseness"
this is due because in rebol, everything (well almost) is an expression and reuses the
SAME basic expressions (coding) rules.
So that's why I meant that knowing what you want to do, withing what parameters, actually
defines what is the best course of action.
now go up and learn all of those words in the dictionnary also, ALWAYS remember to
check out the refinements. hey, even I revisit it now and then to refresh my memory.
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
