[REBOL] Re: Version incompatibilities

From: SunandaDH:aol at: 16-Dec-2005 5:01

Hi Gabriele,
> Just a wild guess, but could it be BREAK inside the parse rules?
Thanks. That looks highly likely. Seems we have two problems: 1. color-code.r only works for versions of REBOL that include 'break in the parse dialect -- as you've just spotted 2. No version of REBOL can load a header for a script that has a 'needs entry for a later version: load/header {rebol [needs: 99.99.99]} ;; fails with all versions I know of. The parse problem blinded me to the load problem -- hence my inaccurate statement about load/header not being a problem (see earlier in this thread). There is an old RAMBO report outstanding about load/header (3968) but it doesn't cover this case, so I've just added a new one. We've applied a bit of lateral thinking to the problem -- it now looks like everything works at despite the obstacles.
