[REBOL] Re: PAIR! and greater-than less-than
From: chalz:earthlink at: 26-Feb-2002 1:14
I think we've been over this before on this list.
Besides, if you look at the output from 'minimum, what it did was return a
new PAIR! which contains the minimum values from each half of each given PAIR!.
It's basically been decided you can't really compare PAIR! values for
greater/less-than, because how do you *define* which is greater and which is
less? But 'minimum just takes something like 'minimum AxB CxD and returns ExF,
where E is the smaller of A and C, and F is the smaller of B and D. Pretty
basic. Not sure, myself, what use it is, but hell, there it is.
