[REBOL] Re: head reverse annoys me

Annoying? Yes.. But used? Yes -- quite commonly. I've scanned a pile of code and found it on several occasions. Typically something like: if user-display-option = "earliest first" [ data: head reverse data ] foreach item data [ .... ] Sadly, all that code would break. How about a related word? invert: func [item] [head reverse item] Sunanda
