[REBOL] Re: Improved SOURCE function

From: larry:ecotope at: 6-May-2001 0:29

Hi Blaz, Carl, Anton Just a footnote on source system It works instantly in Core. In View, probably everyone gets an out of memory error. I just watched it and memory use grows to about 14 MB when the memory error occurs. I have 128 MB of memory so it must be some kind of internal memory error. Odd, because I believe we used to be able to get the output in View/beta 4. It is not just the view object code because src rebol/view works fine. It was noted in some recent posts that the same lock-up out-of-memory problem occurs with: source ctx-viewtop even though it is a fairly small piece of code (about a thousand lines). The underlying problem is with the MOLD function. Newcomers should be aware that this has been a problematic aspect of REBOL for a long time, although seemingly fixed in Core. -Larry
