REBOL.org and directly doable scripts?

Hi, couldn't there be a shortcut to be able to directly copy the script link from email and run it in rebol console? Viewable version is fine, as is downloadable, but that is few extra steps. I thought REBOL scripts are embeddable into html pages, but I can't run any of my last tries. The last rebol.org automat posted script link e.g. contains escaped <, > characters. Does it need to be escaped? I mean - maybe we could put script once again into the page, to be runnable, into some comment section where >< chars will not make problems? Or maybe we could introduce fourt link in addition to View, Download, Run, called Source, and put plain text version there? Just a suggestion :-) Petr

There *could* be, but there isn't as yet. You could use this function (or extend it to do lots of useful things). It assumes you have copied the target URL from the REBOL.org notification email onto the clipboard. do-ro-script: func [ /local target ][ target: to-url read clipboard:// replace target "view-script.r?script=" "download-a-script.r?script-name=" do read target ]

That is supposed to work, but doesn't for all scripts. Part of the reason is that view-scripts.r escapes angle bracket characters....
