[REBOL] Re: Cunning use of [], () & {} in R# and in future? Rebol versions?

From: mmastroianni::lepcorp::com at: 17-Oct-2003 11:22

Hi all - This thread reminds me of some of the very nice MATLAB notation for referencing matrix or array elements: A(1:10) - elements 1 thru 10 A(:,5:10) - all rows, only columns 5 thru 10 A(5:10,:) - all columns, only rows 5 thru 10 A(:) - all elements A' - all elements transposed (cols switched with rows) dimension r x c becomes c x r It might be nice to accommodate the two dimensional idea as an enhancement; n-dimensional referencing might be nice too... A REBOL shorthand for block or series referencing in this flavor might be very helpful -- at least I think it would. On the other hand, I've got a long way to go before I appreciate the subtleties of REBOL ... Mike
