Block parsing - function! datatype

 [1/3] from: pwawood:gma:il at: 21-Jul-2007 17:20


When parsing a block for a function! value, I'm finding the value that I'm trying to set gets set to [second function] value rather than the function:
>> a: func [] [12.34] >> parse [:a] [set b function!]
== false
>> source b
b: [12.34] Is this the expected behaviour? My workaround is a bit cumbersome:
>> parse [first :a second :a] [set spec block! set body block!]
== false
>> b: func spec body >> source b
b: func [/local][12.34]
>> b
== 12.34 Any improvements? Regards Peter

Notice the FALSE here! The block you are parsing contains a get-word not a function.
>> f: func [a] [print a] >> parse reduce [:f] [set g function!]
== true
>> :g >> source g
g: func [a][print a] HTH, Gabriele.
