[REBOL] Re: Reverse Parsing

> Is there an easy, obvious, way that I can't see to parse backwards with
alternation capabilities? For example, I want to find the last word typed,
so I search backwards from the caret position looking for any [tab space
return]. I can search backwards with find, but it doesn't allow alternation
(does it?). I can parse forwards, ignoring all but the last item I find, but
is that the best approach?
Would reverse-ing the string first, then parse-ing work for you?
>> s: "a word at last ^-"
== "a word at last ^-"
>> head reverse s
== "^- tsal ta drow a"
