[REBOL] Re: Enhancement Request - Range! datatype Re:(3)

Hello [dynalt--dynalt--com]! On 20-Ago-00, you wrote: d>> The dash is what is used in human languages, so I agree d>> Andrew here.

Words and issues can have "x"s too, but REBOL is able to understand that 100x100 is a pair!. I think that Andrew's examples wouldn't create problems for the parser, which already seems to be able to do some magic. Anyway, ".." is a reasonable separator too, so we can leave the choice to Carl. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez.
