loaddoes not evaluate anything, if that's what you mean.
@nedzadarek I'd rather go with:
view [ in: area out: area return below button "copy!" [ if size: attempt [1 + in/selected/y - in/selected/x][ out/text: take/part at trim/all/lines copy in/text in/selected size ] ] ]
... which gives me an obscure error whenever I try to set
As most of you know, @9214 is part of our extended Team Red group. I've chatted with him about some of his recent comments here, and apologize. We expect everyone to remain civil, though things will sometimes get heated. We understand that.
@lepinekong_twitter, while not defending @9214's behavior, I understand what sets him off.
You ask a lot of questions. All well and good. But then you don't seem to listen to advice given, beyond using working code or fixes others provide. You do things in quite a different way, also fine, but it makes it harder to help you. That means more effort on our part. Most frustrating is that you seem to blame Red first, and cast aspersions, which makes us (myself included) defensive. I admit that your idea of Red being stable, or subject to semantic versioning in its current state, made me wonder where you got those ideas. It's unfair to us, to claim an expectation for something we never committed to. Do you agree? Red is Alpha, and things will break. Sometimes big things. Expect that for a while.
I've asked @9214 not to respond to you anymore, not even to be helpful. I will also ask other team members to make sure their time is distributed equitably. We do want to help and support you but, for all the help you receive, I don't often see you helping others in return. Until we can put RED tokens to use, our informal ledger has to be balanced based on human judgement.
And, by using FOSS software, be aware that if you say "it should...", we may say "You're right! Make that happen." :^)
I do wish you luck and Happy Reducing.
Thanks Gregg. In fact I wanted to ask yesterday, if Vladimir is the same 9214 user we used to know, as some of the reactions to questions (no matter how technically funded), were quite harsh and personal. In fact, I do remember many Rebol gurus from the past (who are not with us for quite some time), we went thru so many concept discussions, but it never slipped to almost personal level.
I agree, that precise technical knowledge and understanding of all concepts is a big advantage, but I do remember, with Rebol, even gurues argued over the concepts, R2 being a closed sources. Yet it did not prohibit ppl from writing a useful tools. Simply Rebol allowed even not so much skilled ppl to write a useful app. Yes, I know, it might turn into a disaster later, but ....
Simply put, we should be friendlier to both newcomers / oldtimers, who seek for a help. If answers are dismissive and discouraging, ppl will refrain from asking in the end, to just not feel dumb. As the saying goes - there is no dumb question. Of course if someone is trolling the language or would like to turn it into another language xy he/she already knows, that's a bit different story, but I think we have handled even such cases in the past in a civilised way ...
Thanks again ....

-rflag instead of
-c, and with
copy, that will modify original text in-place.
