[REBOL] Re: COLLECTing results

Just to chime in (good thread BTW)... RMM> Hi, just to throw in my 0.02, did you had a look at the C++ STL library? RMM> Especially the concepts of iterators, algorithms, functonids, predicates RMM> etc. seem to be very similar to what you are doing here. IIRC I brought RMM> up the idea to use such "generic concepts" with Rebol long long ago. IMO RMM> this would lead to a very cute generic Rebol library like the STL is for RMM> C++. Robert Smalltalk has similar concepts, and of course these types of things are often taught in conjunction with Lisp, Scheme, and other functional languages. Lots of places to draw inspiration from. -- Gregg
