[REBOL] what if you squish one of your words?

From: galtbarber::mailandnews::com at: 11-Aug-2000 18:14

what if you make screw up like I did the other day and kill one of your critical key functions. e.g. first: "oh, well, it's only a vital rebol word!" now, I can't get to the original value of the word 'first to restore it. It is a native, and even if I run another copy of rebol.exe to check out what it was set to, I still don't know if there is a way to set it back. Usually, it wouldn't matter, I suppose. But occasionally you may be in the middle of something you don't want to lose. Is there any way to recover? -Galt p.s. I tried this, but it didn't work with a lot of functions, including source or help which use first. first: func [x][pick x 1] I guess first is heavily overloaded. I think it works differently with ports, too.
