[REBOL] Re: How to remove words from objects?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 13-Jan-2004 10:50

Hi Luke, You already got some solutions; I'll just add some comments. L> I'm trying to dynamically add and remove words from an L> object...I know I could dynamically reconstruct it from scratch, L> but that is not very elegant. There must be a better way... Not really. The issue lies in the fact that the context of an object isn't dynamic; you can't add or remove things. The global context in REBOL is the only special case of a dynamic context I believe. You can get tricky and work around it, by including a block in your object and using that as kind of a sub-context--because blocks are resizable. I think Ladislav or Joel posted a dynamic object example here at one time. I didn't find one on in a quick search, maybe somebody submit one if they have it handy. -- Gregg
