[REBOL] Re: BASIC-like string functions

If you really want to "equate to BASIC's" string functions,
then you will want to copy, as that's the real behavior of
If you use the non-copying version of Right, and subsequently
modify the resulting string value, you'll find that you've
also changed the original, due to sharing of the underlying
sequence of characters.
Right, thanks for confirming that for me. Even though I can see where the
non-copy version might be nice from an efficiency standpoint, I think it's
better to be safe and have them all conform to the same behavior.
