here I would now use:
md5: form checksum skip inBuffer 2 'md5
md5: enbase/base checksum/method skip inBuffer 2 'md5 16
@Oldes, I think we're seeing the same patterns.
@ne1uno where are hex colors used as
binary! in Red? e.g. pixels in images are tuples.
My suggestion is to look at
to-hex and see if it can be extended (I wish it were a mezz, for easier playing). It's used in the Red codebase is in the JSON emitter, for
\u chars, but a dozen places or so in %.r support files in the core. It returns an issue, as R2 did, but bear in mind that they were a string type in R2 and a word type in Red. @ne1uno already noted that it's an alternative approach to
Format will likely have hex output support, as a side note.
For now, I'd wrap
enbase, though we have a number of places "hex" is used in a name, but for different purposes.
form-as-hex could be a name to use as a playground.
-cmay fail for numerous reasons, depends on your code
on-change could append chars and reset face/text: "**"
