[REBOL] Re: R: Re: switch and datatype

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 7-Jul-2001 14:52

Hello Romano! On 06-Lug-01, you wrote: RT> tipo: string! switch to-word mold tipo [string! [print RT> "switched"]] Is there any reason you can't use: tipo: 'string! or tipo: type?/word value-to-check RT> tipo: string! switch tipo compose [ (reduce string!) [print RT> "switched"]] You can remove the REDUCE here. RT> Compose reduce a little. Hmm... I don't this it will be any faster (slower, maybe). Anyway, you'll usually do this only once so this is not a problem. Also, notice that:
>> switch string! ["" [print "A-ha!"]]
A-ha! which is probably simples, provided you're dealing with types that can be represented literally (lexically?). Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila --
