[REBOL] Set-words and refinements

From: brett:codeconscious at: 14-Nov-2000 21:26

In the "add/subtract with dates" thread Jim Goodnow II suggested the following date/month: date/month + 1 I must have my eyes closed, or a part of my brain just filtered away this for me so far - it was quite a suprise. In Delphi I'd think "oh I see, date is a class with a property called month which when set invokes a method to change the date and when accessed invokes a method to return the month". But this is Rebol and while I understand that date is a native datatype and thus perhaps treated specially by the interpreter I was still suprised. Two questions 1) Any more of these?! 2) Can I build an object that behaves like that? And if not, then RT, could I could I please please..? It looks kinda cool. Brett --
