no "Dialect" notion can help you with your problem. (My personal
preferences are, that Rebol functions aren't "Rebol dialect",
because I think that there is a difference between a Rebol code in
a block and a Rebol function, which has got more attributes, than
Rebol code - see my Rebol function model in Words, Bindings and
Contexts thread.) Back to your problem. The difference you see can
be visualised here:
append :b "a"
add :b 1
The results show, that there are differences between integers and
strings in Rebol, Rebol strings are mutable (you can change them),
while integers are immutable (you cannot change them). More can be
found eg. in:
www.rebol.org/advanced/mutable.r or in the Evaluation thread.
