[REBOL] Re: Re, Re: Parse problem

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 9-Oct-2005 11:26

Hi Patrick,
>>> to-block "(foo"
PPln> ** Syntax Error: Missing ) at end-of-script PPln> ** Near: (line 1) (foo PPln> It seems like a bug to me. Not a bug. REBOL needs to convert the data to valid REBOL values, which (foo isn't. This comes up from time to time, but it's just a distinction we need to acknowledge; there are times when we'll need to use string parsing, rather than block parsing, even though it's more effort. -- Gregg
