[REBOL] Re: Context and Rebol call

From: antonr::lexicon::net at: 15-Oct-2004 0:52

Hi Philippe, 1/ CONTEXT - check the source of 'context. You will see that it just makes an object! Therefore, the difference your two examples is that the first object has a word referencing it, and the second object does not. The second context is often called an "anonymous context". 2/ I am not sure exactly what information you want, perhaps the order of operations. Well, looking at Sys Internals File Monitor log output (carefully filtered) It looks like, after rebol.exe starts, it loads, in order: - a whole bunch of windows DLL's then the following files: - license.key - rebol.r - user.r What strikes me as strange, is, *before* the DLL's are loaded, lots of directories in the public cache (only the ones that I reference by doing my user.r) are scanned. Perhaps this is rebol's LOAD phase, which verifies all the file paths ??! then later the files are actually done. I'm at a loss to how to explain this at the moment. :) Anton.
