[REBOL] Re: Pointers, Context in Rebol 3.0 (For the real Rebol Lovers)

From: gregg::pointillistic::com at: 23-Mar-2007 22:47

Hi Giuseppe, GC> For rebol 3.0 I ask you the ability to point to an external GC> function like having a pointer to a function in C. Changing the GC> pointed function should change the working of F1 in both the GC> declared objects. I'm not sure how well the concept fits with the prototype-based model REBOL uses. It's not that it can't be done, I think Max has built a class-based object system in REBOL already. The question is whether this is a better solution than how we would do it today (what you might call workarounds :). Carl's latest blog posts about objects indicate that there will be more flexibility in R3 objects. I'd like to hear some of the gurus weigh in on this too. -- Gregg
