Problem with load/header and trim/lines

 [1/3] from: hallvard::ystad::oops-as::no at: 4-Mar-2004 23:05

Hello list I'm trying to use load/header for a rebol script to retrieve the header. This works fine:
>> probe first load/header read
But then trim/lines seems to destroy everything:
>> probe first load/header trim/lines read
Has anyone seen this before? Does anyone know a workaround? HY

What are you trying to do? My suggestion: don't use trim/lines (or read for that matter). The newline between shebang line and the beginning of the rebol header is removed by trim/lines. I think the rebol header must begin on a new line.
>> probe load/header {# rebol []}
** Syntax Error: Script is missing a REBOL header ** Near: probe load/header "# rebol []"
>> probe load/header {# ^/rebol []}

Interesting. I don't recall having seen that in the docs anywhere. OK, the problem seems to be _found_. I'll find a workaround. Thanks, Anton! HY
