[REBOL] Rebol Enhancement Proposal - Embedding spaces in path! datatypes

See the last message in the thread for examples of pick.
Normal path! datatypes look like this: word/sub-word/sub-sub-word Currently Rebol doesn't understand strings in a path. I'm proposing that Rebol should return things using a string as a path. For example: block: [ "A string with spaces" [ Test [ Item 99 ] ] ] To refer to "99" it would be nice if Rebol understood the following as a path: block/"A string with spaces"/Test/Item and for convenience the following format: /"block/A string with spaces/Test/Item" Both of the above will return "99. The last format is based on Rebol's format for long filenames with embedded spaces, like: %"Directory/Sub-Directory/My File.txt" Opinions? Problems? Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
