[REBOL] REBOL Assign command.
From: edanaii::cox::net at: 28-Dec-2002 9:03
I don't know if this has ever been done, so I did it myself. Created
something similar to the Assign command on the Amiga. Here is the code:
Assign: Func [ "Creates an Amiga-like Assign command."
Volume [ Word!] "The function that this
command will create."
Path [ String! File! ] "The directory path that will
be assigned to it"
Do Rejoin [ Volume ": Func [ AssignPath ] [ Return to-file Join %"
Path " AssignPath ] " ]
It creates another function that returns the path specified when called.
So, for example, to create an Assign to locate REBOL Source code:
ASSIGN 'REBSOURCE C:REBOL/SOURCE
I can then call it to get source files:
DO REBSOURCE HOWDY.R
But if I call it to read a directory, I still need to pass a parameter.
READ REBSOURCE "."
This is slightly cumbersome.
So, all that being said, is there a way to make parameters optional in
REBOL? So far, in my meager investigations, I have not found a way. I'd
like to complete the function so that it can be called like this: READ
REBSOURCE, no parameters.
