>Because rebol really is just evaluating expressions as it encouters them one thing at a time, when it hits a string value, for example, IF no previous function required an argument, it is ignored, and evaluation simply continues to the following item of code.
Correction: the string is not ignored. It is evaluated (to itself!). Isn't it so?
>I know this is isn't news to any of the fluent rebolers, but once and a while I like to remind the list about these potent rebol features for newcommers.
You're right to do so. Although I've been a rebol script kiddie for a long time, I don't think I realized this (about the Expression Based part of REBOL) before the third or fourth time I read these things.
