error? try load bad-path
[1/2] from: bry::itnisk::com at: 11-Mar-2004 21:06
I have a situation where I'm converting a string to a path and loading it, in some situations this string can be a bad path, I want to catch that, so I put in this patherr: error? try[load pass] either patherr = true[ ] [ passlevel: load pass passlevel: to-integer passlevel ] unfortunately in the cases where I pass a bad path I get the following: ** Script Error: Invalid path value: skjjsjnf ** Where: do-boot ** Near: passlevel: to-integer passlevel

The error is with the to-integer and not load, so load seems to be loading your bad path ok. What are the paths to? If to files and pass is a string, then load will quite happily load the string. Changing [load pass] to [load to-file pass] will generate an error if it's not a file. load, (roughly speaking), converts a file or string to REBOL format. Hence the following loads quite happily and generates a block...
>> test: load "aa %bb cc"
== [aa %bb cc ]
>> type? test/1
>> type? test/2
== file! Hope this helps, but if it's not a file you're trying to load then it probably won't... -- Carl Read
