[REBOL] Essay on Associative Data Stores Re:(3)

From: larry:ecotope at: 19-Sep-2000 9:51

Hi Joel, Ole What Joel writes about tradeoffs is true, but the most important thing to know is that the REBOL hash! datatype only hashes strings (a little missing documentation). For other datatypes, you just get a more expensive block with no speed benefits. Jim has said that he will extend it to hash numbers as well, but no schedule on that. Cheers -Larry PS Joel, I have really enjoyed your recent essays and benchmarks. ---------excerpt from original message
