[REBOL] Re: Best way to alias words

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 9-Nov-2001 17:55

Hi Allen, << Alias has more value for making different language versions. When a word is aliased it affects all contexts where that word is used. >> Ahhhh. Localization and aliasing need to be considered together so we don't create a mess of things. So, should we use 'alias *only* for localization to avoid confusion and make the distinction clear about what your intent is (aliasing v localization) or is that too much of a generalization? --Gregg
