[REBOL] Re: PDF Maker

Hello Maxim!

[...] You are right; in my dialect, indeed, options FOLLOW the command . It's just that I decided to make "solid box" a different command from "box": they even accept different options; this is not just because I'm crazy, :) but because PDF uses different commands to stroke or fill a path and because things like the inner color make no sense for a normal "box". This way I can handle defaults differently in the two cases; that is: box 255.0.0 ... ; box with red edge while solid box 255.0.0 ... ; red box and you don't have to write: box edge color 255.0.0 box solid fill color 255.0.0 Anyway, since I don't have any backward compatibility problem yet, :) I'll change to that what makes most sense to you all. So let's discuss it together and let's take a decision! :) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila --
