parse files-block [file!] returns false

I am probably infected here by awk thinking, but I would like to be able to parse a block of files using block parsing, and I think the docs do not mention the file! datatype for Matching. ; if I resist obeying the manual and try it anyway
>> files_block read %. ;list of files in current directory >> parse files-block [file!]
==false Is this intentionally not allowed? or am I looking at it wrong? Thanks, Steve Shireman

Petr, Thanks--got me off dead center. I didn't have the some in there, besides my email typo. Nice to get quick help--even cooler that its from a country farther away than California... Steve Shireman Petr Krenzelok wrote:
