[REBOL] Re: The complete Rebol named argument passing

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 26-Feb-2004 23:40

Hi Romano, On Thursday, February 26, 2004, 6:56:08 PM, you wrote: RPT> omitting arguments for false refinements, else it should become something RPT> like: RPT> apply :find [find a b false false false false false false false true 3] Do you think you would use APPLY that way? I wouldn't. I would use it this way, instead: my-find: func [ series value /part range /only /case /any /with wild /skip size /match /tail /last /reverse ] [ ; something useful ... apply :find [ series value part range only case any with wild skip size match tail last reverse ] ; something useful ... ] Now, if you consider that that block can be constructed automatically, you see that is not so much of a problem. Also, if you have a native APPLY like the one I described, you could write a mezzanine function like the one you described; however, with your APPLY, you'd have trouble writing a function like the above...
