Mmmm, that's interesting. I bet you could use that to make a VASTLY
more elegant solution to my rather disgusting hack to generate some
serial numbers with padded zeros.
How could you extend that for a 3 digit issue?
I'd show you how I did it but it's really quite embarrassing ;)
The only thing that really annoys me in rebol is simple high level
string handling really. The Amigas Arexx had such easy ways to do this
sort of thing - in fact so did BASIC even.
Tell you something else I'd give my left one for, a straight port of
the Arexx parse command. I don't think I'll *ever* understand Rebols
