[REBOL] Re: for bug?

From: rotenca:telvia:it at: 17-Jun-2002 8:11

Hi Joel and Gabriele, thanks for your answers. My point of view is that if 'for accepts unsigned integer, it must know how to handle them. In my expression i have asked to stop at 255 not at something > 255. I think that 'for should be an until loop: until [ ... i >= 255 ] not a while loop: while [i > 255][ ... ] else 'for couldn't handle unsigned value in the right mode and it should not accept values it does not know how to handle. But perhaps others languages have this limitation in their for loop with unsigned values. Joel do you confirm this? --- Ciao Romano
