[REBOL] Re: Problem? load %script.r - howto retrieve all!!??

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 18-Mar-2002 6:01

Hi, Norman, This isn't exactly an answer to the question as you posed it, but here's something I do that helps deal with the situation. Rather than having a REBOL file (*.r) contain a collection of various parts, I prefer to 1) make sure that a single source file contains components of a single specific concept, and 2) wrap the entire collection in an object. I used to create source files that read like this: REBOL [ ... ] foo: make object! [ ... ] with only a single object per source file. If the object contained a method that was intended for stand-alone use, that method was usually named RUN , so that I could type at the console something like generate-html/run %filename If I wanted to be able to use the function from the command line, I'd simply follow the object definition with an evaluation of the RUN method with appropriate arguments. The above strategy would help avoid clobbering globally- defined words (or words defined in another source file) and would allow the listing of the object just loaded to see all its content. More recently, I've started defining "bare objects" without assigning a name in the file, such as REBOL [ ... ] make object! [ ... ] This way I can say glorp: load %sourcfilename.r either at the command prompt or within another source file, and control the scope of the loaded object more precisely. However, the other benefits above still apply. HTH! -jn- [Robolinth--nodep--dds--nl] wrote:
