[REBOL] Bug in delete?

From: reboler:programmer at: 28-Feb-2002 9:08

The following does not work, from the /Core Guide in the Files Section: A block of files within the same directory can also be deleted: delete [%file1 %file2 %file3] See the console output below. Is this a bug or a feature? ;) The source for 'delete shows it will not accept a block! Did I miss another function that will delete all files in a block? ( besides... forall my-block [delete my-block/1])
>> write %test.1 "test1" >> write %test.2 "test2" >> write %test.3 "test3" >> list-dir
