[REBOL] Does the REBOL book clarify REBOL semantics?
From: j_gauss::paradise::net::nz at: 21-Nov-2000 10:43
I've recently been looking at REBOL and the manual.
I must admit that I find the latter somewhat unclear
in places. For instance, we can pass arguments with
and maybe some other ways as well.
There doesn't seem to be a place in the manual where
this crucial matter is explained in terms of say
'by copy', 'by value', 'by reference', etc - conventional
usage that can clarify matters greatly.
Accordingly, I'm considering buying "REBOL-The Official Guide".
However, before doing so I'd like to solicit your opinions
on the text. Does it clarify some of the parameter passing
semantics? Does it clarify the notion of a "value"? Does it
ramble? Please be critical.
I sent an email to join the r-tog list but I'm still being
processed - for the last 3 days.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
