[REBOL] Unable to use Switch and Datatypes..

From: scott::dunlop::home::com at: 7-May-2001 9:07

Is this a bug or a feature? The following code, which I would expect to generate 'A word is a word.', outputs 'A word is not always a word.', indicating that word! is not equivalent to word! for the purposes of switch. This also appears to be the case with the string! datatype. The interesting thing is that [word! == word!] returns true. switch/default type? 'aWord [ word! [ print "a word is a word."] ] [ print "A word is not always a word." ] Thanks in advance for any suggestions people have for working around this, aside from a long chain of Either statements.. --Scott.
