[REBOL] Re: ANN: custom-types.r

From: brett:codeconscious at: 15-Mar-2003 14:20

Hi Gabriele, I think that your ideas are very useful. Throw. I really like the use of errors to communicate back important information (esp. the use of the Near error field). I wonder whether parse could have some default functionality like you have made that could be turned on when using it for validation only. Interpret With. Allowing control functions is really powerful, and can be best understood where the dialect input to process is "generating" something (e.g xhtml). Its a great idea, it raises the standard for dialects that we implement. Now I know that you have made handling of control functions optional by allowing the the choice to use the Interpret term or not, but I wonder about security in the situation where some dialect input comes from a potentially un-trustworthy or unreliable source. [ repeat count 1000000...] could become an x-internet denial-of-service attack. :^) I'm sorry I don't have something more valuable or constructive to contribute to your great work! Thanks again for your efforts. Regards, Brett.
