[REBOL] Using " in a string

From: johnkenyon::uk::ibm::com at: 16-Aug-2000 14:20

Thorsten, You can use { and } as alternatives to the " character. Try
>> s: {hel"lo}
== {hel"lo}
>> parse s [ to {"} mark: (remove/part mark 1) ]
== false
>> probe s
hello == "hello" or you may want parse s [ any [to {"} mark: (remove/part mark 1) ]] to do more than 1. Maybe in combination with a file: read/lines %filename and a foreach line file [ ... bye, john Hi List, I need to search for " in lines of a file to remove them, but i dont know to do that. All other characters are no problem, but """ wont work. Everything i tried ends up in an Invalid String failure. Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted. Thorsten
