[REBOL] Re: The truth about scope

From: volker:nitsch:gm:ail at: 14-Apr-2005 13:12

Hi Gabriele, i guess you made a typo and now we have a misunderstanding. you wrote
>> s: "A string."
== "A string."
>> b: reduce [s]
== ["A string."]
>> insert skip s 2 "modified "
== "string."
>> s
== "A modified string."
>> b
== ["A modified string."] Here s and b/1 are actually the same. i guess you got confused by the insert skip s 2 "modified " if you would store that, s: insert skip s 2 "modified " you would be right. but you did not, they are the same, and everyone is scratching his head ;) On 4/14/05, Gabriele Santilli <[gabriele--colellachiara--com]> wrote:
