I can, but it's much more slower and it would mean to make it
completely again. Maybe I could use load/next but how to convert
invalid word to word?
I would like to have at least special load refinement to convert
invalid words to something usable (strings are not the best solution,
because than I may have problem recognize if it was normal string or
just a variable which was not parsed as a normal datatype - that means
I would like to have something I what I call 'invalid datatype'
But it looks that i will have to wait a few years (if I would have a
luck a something will happen)
