[REBOL] Re: Ready for REBOL/Core 2.6?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 8-Mar-2002 11:36

Hi Porter, << In this case, "example" is being used as a prototype object. It is cloned (rather a new instance of it is created) as "timer". In theory (unless I'm missing something) "timer" is now seperate from the original "example" and can be modified independently. New variables and functions can be added to timer without affecting "example". >> The issue, as I understand it, is that you can't add new functions and variables to TIMER. It's set of words is fixed when it is created and cannot be extended. You would have to create a new object, based on TIMER, in order to add new words to it. --Gregg
