[REBOL] Re: hash questions

From: larry:ecotope at: 8-Jan-2002 12:26

Hi David, Joel has already given an excellent overview of using the hash! datatype. I just want to mention an additional issue with the hash! type. AFAIK, Only strings and integers are hashed to provide fast search. So for a block which contains consecutive key-value pairs, converting the block to a hash will be a benefit only when the keys are either integers or strings. Does anyone know if other REBOL datatypes can be hashed? -Larry
