[REBOL] Re: head reverse annoys me

From: rebolforces:g:mail at: 17-Dec-2004 11:47

I remember arguing for this change when reverse was first introduced. ;-) You provided an example at the time of wanting to keep it consistent with insert, unfortunately I can't find that example now. I use reverse a bit for manipulating face pane blocks, or for a reverse lookup list. Never found an occassion where I didn't want the head returned. I'm sure I'll finally find one the moment it is changed. :-) The current need to use head with reverse is not intuitive for most people the first time they encounter it. So I vote for the change. -- Allen On Thu, 16 Dec 2004 12:01:21 -0800, Carl <[carl--rebol--net]> wrote:
