Preserving Datatype formatting.
[1/5] from: edanaii::cox::net at: 21-Feb-2003 14:39
OK. Next dumb question. :) How do I preserve datatype formatting? In other words, given the following:
>> Print %ThisFile.r
>> Print "Text"
Text How do I get this instead:
>> Print To-Magic-Function %ThisFile.r
>> Print To-Magic-Function "Text"
Text Notice that the datatype specifiers (%") are displayed, not removed. If there is a function to do this, I have not found it yet. -- Sincerely, | Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you Ed Dana | want to test a man's character, give him power.
