[REBOL] Saving and Loading

From: mdb::gci::net at: 28-Nov-2000 14:43

Hi, I've been using the following code for a long time to download mail, save it to a file and load it back again.
>msgs: load/all %mailbox >mailbox: open pop://xxx:[yyy--mail--net] >l: length? mailbox >if l > 0 [ >forall mailbox [ msg: import-email first mailbox > append msgs reduce [msg/from msg/date >msg/subject msg/content] > ] > save %mailbox msgs]
and everything works just fine. But every now and again, i get a mail message whose contents contain mismatched "{" and "}" and so the load/all produces the following:
>> load/all %mailbox
** Syntax Error: Invalid string -- {Great Stuff Tom!. ** Where: (line 295) [[larry--ecotope--com]] 15-Nov-2000/17:19:27-8:00 [REBOL] Re: Simple things should be simple to do ? {Hi Michael
I was wondering: why does the save allow the invalid string to be saved in the first place and should i in fact be using save/load or maybe save the data as objects instead. Thanks in advance. Mike.
