[REBOL] handling elements with no children with xml-object script

From: mgh520::yahoo::com at: 4-Sep-2001 6:59

I've started using the xml-object script by Gavin McKenzie and it's pretty cool (great documentation too). But has anyone noticed that it doesn't seem to be handling elements that don't have children? For example: <Person name="Homer"/> will throw an error at the length? children line in xml-object.r. In the script, children is assumed to not be none. I did this following quick fix: right after children is set, I check to see if it's none and if it is, set it to an empty series, like this: if children = none [ children: copy [] ] and that seems to take care of it. At least it creates the object with no complaints. I haven't used the created object extensively yet, but a probe of it looks like it's good. mike
