Curiosity: mold system in /Core versus /View
[1/5] from: gjones05::mail::orion::org at: 17-Apr-2001 13:41
Now we can do the following in /Core 2.5: write %system.txt mold system in order to look at the mezzanine source code. Why does this same function not work in /View? Just curious. --Scott Jones

I just got done doing just that...works fer me... write %system.txt mold system unless i'm missing something...got a system.txt file that has about 1.5 megs of text data from the system Alan

VID faces are fairly complex and include cyclic references, so the print function is probably stuck in a loop.

Aha, so I was not being patient! So I tried being very patient this time, and here is what happened in full: REBOL/View/Pro 126.96.36.199.1 16-Apr-2001 Copyright 2000-2001 REBOL Technologies.

I have a 128 mb 500 mhz (de)Celeron with Win98. Am I really running out of memory? (my machine, that is, for me, running out of memory has already been established! ;) Thanks for the feedback, Alan. --Scott Jones

After reading Alan's explanation and getting the out of memory result, then I dusted off my handy-dandy Windows Resource Meter. System resources dropped very little through the run, so I assume it is some sort of internal buffer that gets used up. Thanks. --Scott Jones
