[REBOL] Re: Problem with paren
From: joel:neely:fedex at: 1-Feb-2003 13:23
I think the problem is that parentheses aren't words, but are part
of the (minimal) REBOL syntax, in exactly the same way that the
square brackets are simply the external syntax for blocks and the
quotes or curly braces are the external syntax for strings.
IFAIK what you'd have to do is either:
1) construct a string out of the concatenation of your block of
values, and then load that string, or
2) write a recursive routine (or parse rules) that handles the
presence of "(" by accumulating the block of content up to
the matching ")" and then converts that block to a paren.
The problem with 1, of course, is word scoping.
