[REBOL] Rebol copy semantics
From: robert::muench::robertmuench::de at: 18-Oct-2003 10:16
Hi, even doing Rebol for several years now, I'm hit by the question
hmm... is this now a reference or a copy?
. Especially in complicated
cases, where you work a lot with blocks, inserts, copying etc. it's easy
to loos track (at least IMO).
Things get even more complicate as some functions seem to create implicit
copies as well. So, for series you get a reference for scalar types you
get the value (see my other posting).
Is there a how-to/tutorial/... that collects all this information in one
doc? If not, do you think it would make sense to write such a thing? Robert
