[REBOL] Re: Reading tcp ports in rebol line by line

> Regarding the newline character: in current versions there is the problem
that in some circumstances after reading an incoming line that is terminated
by crlf only the cr is read from the input buffer (a side effect of REBOL's
automatic crlf conversion), not the nl, i.e. after the first line 'wait will
return immediately (because of the nl), but 'copy still blocks, because no
full new line is available.
> The current workaround is to explicitly tell REBOL what line terminator
you want to use, by using the /with refinement, e.g. /wait "^/". The bug
will be fixed in one of the next experimentals.
Thanks for the better explanation, Holger!
