[REBOL] Re: Function Context Query

From: robbo1mark:aol at: 5-Dec-2001 4:16

Just my 2 cents worth, WHY is setting words in functions to 'none by default useful? Why is the ability to use apparently unset words a desirable feature? Does this not confuse the language in that words cannot be used until after they have been defined? Now we have another "exception" case for words in functions. What makes words in functions different from global words or words in objects or words in a use context? Why the special case? cheers, Mark Dickson In a message dated Tue, 4 Dec 2001 6:44:01 PM Eastern Standard Time, "Larry Palmiter" <[larry--ecotope--com]> writes:
