[REBOL] postfix?

From: rryost::home::com at: 18-Jul-2001 11:10

Roll over again, Charles (Moore)! REBOL/view 1 2.1 3 1 seems to have abandoned the postfix format "arg1 arg2 operator" for + - * / add subtract multiply divide, but no one on this list seems to be disturbed. My two game programs for pre-view REBOL will have to be extensively revised, as I, an old Forther, made frequent use of postfix operators in them! I must admit, accommodating the postfix *and* infix (arg1 operator arg2) probably was quite a problem for RT, and "coming down" on the side of infix is better for the now-generation of programmers. But I'll miss postfix, it seemed closer to the hardware (stack organized), which is where I started in computing. Russell [rryost--home--com]
