[REBOL] composing blocks... (was Re: sorting a serie ....)

From: maximo::meteorstudios::com at: 19-Jun-2003 12:36

in my last mail I again pressed the send button whithout involuntarily.... all that was left to say is that in some circomstances, using compose is more specific. in my experience using vid dynamically, you often need to bind values to words at a precise point in time, other wise you risk running into very confusing code. since compose only reduces the selected expressions, you can more easily leave blocks intact for other funtions which expect words... like dialects, and specifically vid. also, compose has a /deep refinement which easily traverses nested blocks and will only reduce one teeny value deep in the third nest... I don't want anyone to feel like I'm trying to prove everyone wrong. Everyone posted usefull suggestions, and they all depend on context. Its just that I think compose is an underused word and since I've discovered it, MANY of my algorythms have become simpler. my two cents. -max ----------- meteor Studios, T.D. ----------- Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman
