[REBOL] Re: string to object - was: Ask

From: greggirwin:starband at: 27-Sep-2001 20:23

Hi Ammon, << Some one also mentioned 'get. It seems to work as well, or even better for some things. >> Yeah, what I want is something that just retrieves the data. If I use 'do, I may cause execution of code that I don't want to execute. Correct? I can make 'get work to some extent, but I haven't found the magic combination for reaching my ultimate goal. These work fine:
>> probe get in system to-word "options" >> probe get in system/options to-word "cgi"
This does not, unless I use 'do on sys-opt. Tried a number of other things with no success:
>> sys-opt: "system/options"
== "system/options"
>> probe get in do sys-opt to-word "cgi"
So, is it possible to do it without 'do, or can we safely use 'do without side effects? I think it must be possible because the uses for dynamic reflection are just to good to live without. :) --Gregg
