[REBOL] Re: Embedded Markup Considered Harmful [Oct. 02, 1997]

From: reffy:ulrich at: 13-Oct-2002 7:06

If I only had Rebol's graphics, communications, database, and who knows what other capabilities !! ORRRRRR, if only Rebol had generalized arrays ?? I originally chirped in on the XML comments ... Seems that there should be an XML_Display, HTML_Display and other such ways of taking elemental values and wrapping them up. XML_Display (25 87 20) (date) (2 2 ReshapeOf 4 Random 1000) (UCase "Hello World") <VECTOR LENGTH=4> <VECTOR LENGTH=3> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">25</SCALAR> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">87</SCALAR> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">20</SCALAR> </VECTOR> <STRING>Sun Oct 13 07:00:24 2002</STRING> <ARRAY RANK=2 SHAPE=2,2> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">12</SCALAR> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">987</SCALAR> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">82</SCALAR> <SCALAR DATATYPE="NUMERIC">132</SCALAR> </ARRAY> <STRING>HELLO WORLD</STRING> </VECTOR>

You have a good eye, Brett :-)
