Oh, but it does! But on the original line, there was type? /home/http/run/cohen/birds Rebol evaluates through the line, but prints to the console only the last value it encounters. Rebol will pass through like this: refinement!, /http, /run, /cohen, /birds, ... nothing more? OK, let's return /birds, then: == /birds Like Joel pointed out:
>> type? 1 2 3 4
== 4 integer!, 2, 3, 4, ... nothing more? ... etc. But I do admit that it is confusing that rebol sees word boundaries where we do not (immediately). HY
