[REBOL] Re: Prefix colon question

It's the same as "get" I that the key is that everything in REBOL is a value.. I can't give you deep golden answers but try this:
>> pwd: :what-dir >> pwd
== %/C/rebol/view/
>> source pwd
pwd: func [ "Prints the active directory path" ][ system/script/path ] now clear it and try again using get
>> pwd: none
== none
>> pwd: get 'what-dir >> source pwd
pwd: func [ "Prints the active directory path" ][ system/script/path ]
>> ? get
USAGE: GET word /any DESCRIPTION: Gets the value of a word. GET is a native value. ARGUMENTS: word -- Word to get (Type: any-word) REFINEMENTS: /any -- Allows any type of value, even unset.
>> what-dir
== %/C/rebol/view/
>> source what-dir
what-dir: func [ "Prints the active directory path" ][ system/script/path ] ./Jason
