[REBOL] Re: Confusion about foreach

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 17-Mar-2006 10:12

Hi Steve, SW> Robert is right, string consists of single characters. Look at this SW> console session:
>>> record: "abcd"
SW> == "abcd"
>>> record/1
SW> == #"a"
>>> type? record/1
SW> == char! Don't forget to dump stuff out to the console, or a file (look up ECHO) just to see what data is there when this kind of thing happens. There are always times where you think the data is right, but apps don't work. Another thing to remember when doing so, is to use MOLD on values, so you can see the actual REBOL lexical form of the data. -- Gregg
