Hi Romano, On Friday, June 27, 2003, 10:58:55 PM, you wrote: RPT> This is inheritance, trough a dialect. Don't you think? Yes, it is a form of inheritance gained from the ability to treat code as data. However, usually people have a precise idea in mind when they talk about "inheritance". (The person you know ;-) would bash you forever if you called what i wrote above "inheritance"!) RPT> For me it is an example of a different approach to oo: with a dialect instead RPT> of the usual methods of C++ and Java. Indeed, REBOL is OO the Smalltalk (dynamic) way instead of the (bloated, complicated, static) class-based way. But, with REBOL, you also have the ability to add class-based OOP in, if you want. Actually, I wonder why noone has done it yet. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amigan -- AGI L'Aquila -- REB:
