[REBOL] Same block, different formats
From: ddalley::idirect::com at: 13-Oct-2001 21:42
I have REBOL read a directory, to get a block of file names. I want to make
two different uses of that file list.
When the block is printed to the console, the list of names is separated by
a space. The rest of the script interprets the block of names, in memory, as
having separate elements, too, so the script works.
A AA AAC AAPL ABC ABF ABGX ABI ABK ABS ABT ABX ACK ACV...
When the block is written to a file and that file is read with a text reader
or editor, though, the names are one long, continuous string. This format is
obviously useless to me.
Why, and what can I do to ensure that the written block is space separated?
The only difference is in how the block is presented.
In both cases, the block is the same block.
