[REBOL] Dumb problem

From: mat:0wnerage at: 23-Apr-2002 23:14

Folks, Stupid little thing I had to do today and couldn't think of an elegant way of doing it. It's been bugging me. Need function which take a two char string input and returns the integer value. The problem here is I can't work out how to tell Rebol that a string variable can be thought of as hex. Here's my hacky solution; StringToHex: func [ stringin [string!] ][ do rejoin["result: to-integer #{"stringin"}"] result ] Is there a proper way? P.S. I sent a mail earlier that never seemed to get to the list. If I'm not mistaken the real name isn't pulled out into an object with the import-email function? Am I missing something or do I have to parse it out of the full mail myself? (which is what I'm doing now) Regards, Mat.
