[REBOL] Re: Parse: Splitting headache

Thanks. That's a real shame. And an annoying inconsistency. Core.pdf defines a string like this: <<Strings are written in a single-line format or a multiline format. Single-line-format strings are enclosed in quotes. Multiline-format strings are enclosed in brackets.>> and explains parse as <<parse series rules The series argument is the input that is parsed and can be a string or a block. If the argument is a string, it is parsed by character.>> string is being used here in two different senses -- 'parse doesn't recognise {...} as an inner string, though 'load and 'to-block do. At the least the documentation needs a note of clarification. I'm going to drop a note to feedback. Sunanda
