[REBOL] Re: The truth about scope

Hi Ladislav, On Friday, April 15, 2005, 7:42:21 AM, you wrote: LM> *Value sameness doesn't depend on implementation at all.* I perfectly agree, from an "abstract" point of view.

Yes, however the subtle detail we are dealing with may matter in the mental model of, say, a C programmer, who tries to visualize how this would translate into C structures. The difference is that of a pointer versus an "inline" structure. The difference is that of blocks being an array of pointers to values versus being an array of values. It's just an implementation detail, and probably I shouldn't care at all and use an implementation-independent terminology, however I see it as a difference in my head... sorry about that. :-) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amiga Group Italia sez.
