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
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
It was noted in some recent posts that the same lock-up out-of-memory
problem occurs with:
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.
