A better Suffix? function

 [1/4] from: al:bri:xtra at: 6-Aug-2002 23:11

>> source suffix?
suffix?: func [ {Return the extension of a filename or URL, else none.} Path [file! url!] ][ all [ Path: find/last Path #"." not find Path #"/" Path ] ] It's a couple of words shorter and keeps the original type, either file! or url!, and allows it's use in filename and path extraction functions.

Looks good to me. Anton.

Good, although, why didn't you keep Path any-string? Anton.

All the paths I use are file! or url!. I haven't yet come across a case where a paths is string!. So I believe it's best to have a close fit. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
