[REBOL] Re: Hack

Thanks for the correction. In case you didn't pick it up in my earlier email, the Sept 2000 (the latest, I think) Rebol/Core User Guide says of the Error/Where field "The where field is reserved" This is the only place I can find in that manual where something is specifically designated reserved. That means your hack may not work in future versions. But I hope also it means that RT are planning to turn 'Where into a richly meaningful object of error-context information.

Another nice Rebol hack! It's not immediately useful to me as I tend to have objects "two deep". I could use it at the first level: make-ob-name 'f [a: 1 b: 2] but to base an object on that, I still need to write g: make f [c: 3] g/self-name: 'g So it's as easy to follow Joel's suggestion of coding the identifier in the object.
