[REBOL] Re: 'recycle use

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 3-Feb-2004 10:37

Hi Paul, PT> I'm a big confused on 'recycle. How often should it be used - PT> such as should it be called in a large forever loop where you PT> might have a lot of set-word values that you are unsetting? Or PT> will this cause a performance hit from that forever loop? Using recycle will definitely cause a performance hit. It's unlikely that you'll need to use it for 99% of your code. In cases where I use it in a loop, I'll usually use a counter so I only call it every N iterations. Sometimes a specific call or section of logic (e.g. where a large series is allocated), can also be used as a trigger to keep the recycle count down. -- Gregg
