[REBOL] Re: OODB in Rebol

From: reffy:ulrich at: 1-Nov-2002 14:31

Object database? What is that? A Is 1000 1000 ReshapeOf 1000000 Random 8000 If this array which contains 1000000 random numbers isn't an object, then I don't have a clue as to what an object is. I wouldn't expect in the norm that this object would be held in memory. If I reference it in further expressions, I would expect the underlying software to be able to iterate over its elements whether it is in memory or paged to disk. And if the next expression that I type is something like: A *= 100 Then, again, the interim result and the modified A should also be "paginated" if you know what I mean. The attributes which might be tightly bound to A need not be held on disk, but could. For example, A:'title' Is 'A whole lot of random numbers' A:'bgc' 'fgc' Is 'Yellow' 'Blue' Would someone comment on this? Dick
