[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
