[REBOL] Re: [new-line new-lines] NEW-LINES dialect wrapper for NEW-LINE func

From: anton:wilddsl:au at: 18-May-2007 16:01

Hi Gregg, Well, I suggested a dialect when NEW-LINES was being designed, but they were in too much of a hurry. Your dialect seems easy to read but I think it could be more concise. It doesn't really need 'marker(s), 'in or 'item(s). I would also probably move the block to be modified outside the dialect block, as the second argument, to facilitate directly specified (anonymous) blocks. (Yes, I need to do that sometimes.) Otherwise, I'm back to the situation I was in before, with some of the NEW-LINES specification trailing the block to be modified. ("eigth" is also missing an 'h') I certainly appreciate your effort in this direction. Regards, Anton.
