[REBOL] Re: [to] to block! vs to-block

From: antonr:lexicon at: 19-Nov-2004 18:41

Hi Peter, to-block One word, slower execution, more efficient storage to block! Two words, faster execution, less efficient storage I use to-block when I do not care about speed. About storage, think of all the instances in rebol code of to-block (and the others; to-string etc..) Internally, rebol can store these all as a single code, and thus reduce the size of the rebol executable. Two words obviously then take two codes. This will probably bear out in the upcoming ReBIN format, too. Anton.
