[REBOL] Evaluating words...

From: mgkiourt:otenet:gr at: 25-Sep-2001 19:14

Could you please elucidate the following taken from a textbook In the case of values that have a scalar datatype like decimal!, the evaluation results in the value itself. In more complex situations, a word may reference an instruction sequence. The value of the word is that sequence of instructions.During the value's evaluation, each instruction is evaluated. The evaluatiuon concludes with the last instruction in the expression sequence.Then the result of executing the last instruction in the expression sequence is returned as the value of that word.
