[REBOL] Re: REBOL Enhancement Proposals (REPs)

I do agree with you. The introduction of: a/(1 + 1) to Rebol would break the rule stating, that #"(" and #")" are delimiters, which may really turn Rebol inside out.

animals. OTOH, the SELECT way doesn't work in all circumstances where paths are needed. Summary: if the "delimiter rule" breaking is not acceptable for Rebol, there must be another simple enough way to do this. I wrote a DO-PATH function, which at least summarizes the advantages of such approach. Regards Ladislav
