[REBOL] Re: [ A world of words ] naming convention, namespace, namespace pollut

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 28-May-2003 15:47

Hi Marc, MM> --- availability in the names of "special" characters such as "?" "!" "#" I forgot another thing I use them for! If I have a code template that I want to LOAD, and it contains replaceable parameters, I will use those special characters to give them names that stand out, but still allow the code to be LOADed by REBOL. E.g. display-item: func [ {Load the screen with the data from the given item.} item ][ !!!display-item!!! id-list/picked: append clear id-list/picked item/id show main-lay ] Sometimes it's still easier just to use strings, but having lexically correct data can be useful at times. -- Gregg
