[REBOL] the utility of 'bind

From: andreas::bolka::gmx::net at: 21-Jan-2004 18:41

I will spare you my thoughts about REBOL's contexts and 'bind (for now) but I have a practical question: What is the utility of 'bind? No, I don't necessarily mean the typical cases where bind is needed to prevent errors. What I'm really thinking about are situations, where REBOL's behaviour regarding contexts and bind is actually contributing towards an elegant solution for a real problem. I think I remember various parse-based solutions posted to the list, that utilized bind. This is basically a question to those who understand _and_ use 'bind to actually solve problems: What do you use it for? Do you think REBOL's behaviour in those regards is practical? Are you aware of elegant solutions based on 'bind? -- Best regards, Andreas
