[REBOL] Re: [to] to block! vs to-block
From: antonr:lexicon at: 19-Nov-2004 18:41
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.
