[REBOL] Crippled reflection in Rebol?
From: xapwing:g:mail at: 26-Mar-2007 22:54
when I tried to find out the type of several words, I stumbled upon a few
when I do:
>> value? :*
>> value? :/
** Syntax Error: Invalid word-get -- :
** Near: (line 1) value? :/
Also, when I do:
>> type? '*
>> type? '/
** Syntax Error: Invalid word-lit -- '
** Near: (line 1) type? '/
So, in Rebol "everybody is equal, but some are more equal than others"...
This way there is no consistency and retrieving such elementary properties
can be a pain.
Or, what very well might be the case, an I missing something obvious?
Another thing is that I tried to obtain the type for a rebol word which I
have stored in a string!; example:
>> x: "purple"
I found a way to obtain the type in a little bit awkward way:
>> do rejoin ["type? " x]
Is there an easier / better way to do it?
