[REBOL] Re: Getting selection positions from area

From: greg::schofield::iinet::net::au at: 1-Oct-2007 17:03

Hi and thanks Gregg, After a little fiddling I got the code you sent working, and am very happy with the results. A get a fair amount of funnies, I have no error checking at all. While the thing might, in my hands, never be good enough for public release, I can see myself using it fairly soon. In processing large amounts of text I want to create a number of different mechanisms, based on the type of text being processed, rather than a bloated program trying to be everything for all possiblities. What I am trying to do is nothing complex, anyone processing text on a scale knows before hand the type of text it is, my idea is simply you pick the one that best fits and end up with well marked-up (TEI) XML that can be used to generate PDF or voiceXML. Thanks again from a newbie. This is a very helpful and friendly community.
