[REBOL] Change in Path Evaluation

From: carl:rebol at: 26-Oct-2000 18:46

I've been annoyed for a while that:
>> obj: make object! [t: first [now/time 1 2]] >> obj/t
== now/time But:
>> t: first [now/time 1 2]
== now/time
>> t
== 18:35:24 This occurs because paths are aggressively evaluated. It's sure cute, but it gets in the way of useful code (like REBOL/Link desktop implementation). I'm seriously thinking of changing this, so that last expression would become:
>> t
== now/time That is, indirectly referenced paths are by default not evaluated. Comments? -Carl
