[REBOL] Re: IDIOMS: setting multiple words

Sac> If you are going to use set, you could use a shorter method:
Sac> set [foo bar baz] copy 
Sac> Another method you will see around is:
Sac> foo: bar: baz: copy 
You have to be watch, though, for the distinction between setting each
word to refer to its *own* copy of  and setting them all to refer to
the *same* copy of .
Inlining set-word!s is very handy, and safe, for non-series values,
but I don't use it very often for series values.
Sac> I've very occasionally had to extend a function that returned a single value
Sac> to return more than one value...
Yes, another idiom worth discussing. :)
