[REBOL] Re: "Overloading" Rebol functions: Need advice

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 8-Aug-2001 18:56

Works fine for me. I consider it one of the more powerful aspects of REBOL, and it seems it was made to do it very effectively. Just to set you on to the right direction... dont think of 'input as being overloaded, just in a different context, which may have a different meaning--or not. --Ryan Tim Johnson wrote:
