[REBOL] Re: x: :y question

Hi Joel,

One must know what are his own chances and then decide what to do. Then, in the head of code, one could add: ;**************************** ;ATTENTION ;the word != is used as a redefined op! ;ATTENTION ;**************************** By another point of view, that op! has no meaning in Rebol, so if i see it, i cannot be confused by its standard meaning. The big problem for me is: why we have this only op! unused? What will happen in the future versions of Rebol to !=? To be safe I'll use it only as a local word. To say all the truth, i do not like infix operator in Rebol, but i must use them because they are MORE fast then the prefix versions. --- Ciao Romano
