Isn't it fun to debug a difficult to reproduce problem?
I was trying to create errors last night and this morning, but was only
once, so it is hard to reproduce the problem while trying
It may be totally obvious to you, so apologies in advance, but some of the
things I was trying, in order to see where problems may lies, is to have the
function print every line, like the following:
read-til-dot: func [port buf][
while [(line: system/words/pick port/sub-port 1) <> "."] [
insert tail buf line
insert tail buf newline
Similarly, I telnet-ed to my mail server on port 110 then used something
like the following to get to a message 1. It also prints everything up to
the single period on a line.
If you find the problem, I would certainly be interested in hearing what it
is. Good luck.
