[REBOL] Re: Functions, /local and refinements

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 15-May-2004 13:31

Hi Gabriele, GS> The interpreter has never been doing things in any particular way. GS> That is, /LOCAL is just a refinement, like /ALL would, or /WITH, GS> etc. Carl just decided, as a convention, to use the refinement GS> named /LOCAL to define local words; so HELP is just following this GS> convention. As I said, it would make no harm to change HELP, but GS> I'm not really sure it would be worth it... Of course that makes perfect sense, but shouldn't HELP still understand that refinements coming after /local are part of the interface and display them? -- Gregg
