[REBOL] Re: Missing native funcs

From: larry:ecotope at: 3-Jun-2001 12:06

Hi John I think that Core is upgraded with bug fixes and sometimes new features with each product release. So that the version of Core in View 1.2 is more recent than Core 2.5 and presumably the Core in Command 2.0 is updated from that in View 1.2. Also, sometimes functions that were meant to be in a release are inadvertently omitted in the build and functions that were not meant to be in a release are inadvertently included. Perhaps someone from RT could comment on whether TO-LOCAL-FILE and TO-REBOL-FILE are intended to be part of future Core releases. The distinction between native functions (types: op! native! action!) and mezzanines (type: function!) is not pertinent to the distinction between Core and View or Command. Both View and Command include native functions not present in Core (e.g. SHOW and HIDE in View). The View/Pro (and, when available, Core/Pro) license unlocks additional natives in View or Core.

How does that work? to-local-file to-rebol-file I thought View 1.2 used Core 2.5 ? --John
