[REBOL] more? parse

From: Rebolinth:nodep:dds:nl at: 29-Jul-2003 16:37

..Struggling... With my experiences on the 'find function i moved towards 'parse for better string handling.(pfffiew what a relief ;-) As it seemed in the first place... According to the examples in [ 15.html#sect10.5. ] it should be possible to find characters inside a string. oke lets try:
>> probe parse "thisisaverylongstringwhichcouldbeusedbyparse" "very"
== ["thisisa" "" "" "" "longst" "ingwhichcouldb" "us" "db" "pa" "s"]
>> parse/all "thisisaverylongstringwhichcouldbeusedbyparse" {"very"}
== ["thisisa" "" "" "" "longst" "ingwhichcouldb" "us" "db" "pa" "s"]
>> probe parse "thisisaverylongstringwhichcouldbeusedbyparse" [ thru "isa"
to "long" ] == false Very intresting...but not what i expected... (I'm searching for characters inside a string...? or not?) As it seems, a string inside 'parse is a collection of characters seperated by white-space. (Which is more related to the human way of reading instead of the logic of computer-data anyway but oke...) Is it possible anyway? Im expecting to be hit very hard here ;-) so hit me... perhpas a native! extention on parse?
