[REBOL] Re: a new switch-like flow-control function

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 19-Dec-2003 1:58

Thanks Joel, I think this is just what I need. I don't think pif is a good name for it, though, it reminds me of obscure unix commands, not very rebolish. But what is a good name? Perhaps something like "reselect" (because it's a bit like a select reduce, but since that's not strictly true, then that could confuse more..) ? How about "any-select" ? (Guh, same problem) Here's some ideas: - satisfy, select-if, do-elect ... I don't think there is a good word. - poly-if <- that is my favourite so far. Anton.
