[REBOL] Re: if and parens

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 7-Oct-2002 10:16

Hi Laurent, << There is a page in Rebol Zine about Carl S. "mental reduction" tricks, I guess I need to practice them a bit more ;) >> I've been using REBOL for just over a year now, and I think, at least for me, those kinds of insights come more often as time goes by, but they're also easy to miss, even for the experts, until you really let go of old habits, which I haven't been able to do completely yet. If I take the time to go back and refactor bits of code, they often get reduced pretty well. I also learn a lot by playing around with things when debugging. Sometimes, things you think can't possibly work (because they're too simple and obvious) are exactly the right thing to do. The more code I remove, the better things seem to work. :) --Gregg
