We should all be putting a "needs" in our headers. Then at least people would realise they have the wrong version of REBOL instead of thinking they've stumbled across a bug in the script. ie...
>> write %test.r {REBOL [Needs: [REBOL/View 1.2.1]] print "OK."} >> do %test.r
>> write %test.r {REBOL [Needs: [REBOL/View 1.2.2]] print "OK."} >> do %test.r
** Script Error: This script needs 1.2.2 or better to function correctly ** Near: do %test.r No use for our cut&paste example snippets, but important in proper scripts I think. -- Carl Read
