[ALLY] Datatype numbering and the Missing Datatypes

From: allenk:powerup:au at: 21-Sep-2000 23:14

Hi Ally, Found this while I was writing a view function browser script. If you do source unset? you will see it is numbered 1 unset?: native ["Returns TRUE for unset values." value [any-type!] 1] and source? list shows it is numbered 53. list?: native ["Returns TRUE for list values." value [any-type!] 53] This made me curious so I listed out all of datatypes and found 51 of them, the missing numbers are 4 and 21. Anyone know what they are? I also found a symbol! datatype but it has no corresponding word symbol? Can anyone shed any light on that one? Cheers, Allen K Being too curious for my own good..
