[REBOL] Challenging script idea Re:(2)

From: grantwparks:yaho:o at: 30-Aug-2000 8:37

Could this script evolve in the following ways? 1. Ignore header info like author, date and comments 2. Ignore a difference in URLs, filenames, etc. when they are the target of a particular verb. I.E. if I read a URL, but the specific value differs, the 2 scripts are still doing the same thing. In fact the coolest thing I can think of in this case would be reporting that "these 2 scripts are functionally the same, but the first operates on URL: and the second on" Don't mean to put the work on others, but I have barely had the time to even dabble with Rebol, yet (hey, 'dabble with Rebol' has a cool ring to it!). I do, however, have a knack for grammars and other meta/abstraction concepts. And since one can look at the template of any defined function at run time, it seems possible to determine which tokens have significance in a context, and which have none or less. Sort of like being able to determine that "the names have been changed to protect the innocent", but the story's the same. What dost thou think? --- [sterling--rebol--com] wrote:
