Well, I think users don't expect this behavior because they are used to the term "object" as used in OOP (and in particular in class-based OOP). Not to go against Joel, ;) but if RT actually named OBJECT! as CONTEXT! instead this confusion would not exist. (They probably didn't just because they have a CONTEXT! already internally and because OBJECT!s can also be used for OO programming in REBOL.) A REBOL OBJECT! is no more than a series of name/value pairs, and that what is usually referred ad "a context" in REBOL. Things are just simpler than what most users expect. :) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:
