[REBOL] Re: Functions, /local and refinements

Hi Gregg, On Saturday, May 15, 2004, 9:31:51 PM, you wrote: GI> Of course that makes perfect sense, but shouldn't HELP still GI> understand that refinements coming after /local are part of the GI> interface and display them? It surely could; I think it's just that HELP was written with the convention in mind; indeed, there's an: if :item = /local [break] which assumes that /local ends the list of arguments. I think one could replace that with something like: if :item = /local [args: any [find next args refinement! tail args]] (I'm not saying the above would really work, just giving an idea). However, as I said I wouldn't encourage using other refinements after /local; also, maybe we could take this as a feature and use it to create "hidden" refinements that are only used internally and are not really part of the interface...
