How about using an object? Like:
>> Person: make object! [
[ Name: "Rod"
[ Age: 37
[ Profession: "Developer"
The words in a object is:
>> first person
== [self Name Age Profession]
and the values in a object is:
>> second person
make object! [
] "Rod" 37 "Developer"]
Where the first value is 'self, and the next three are name, age and
I hope that helps!
