[REBOL] Newbie Mailing List Questions
From: stasil213:ya:hoo at: 18-Dec-2003 0:48
I've been playing with Rebol for a few months now (I like it!!), but am new
to this mailing list. I have a few questions.
1. Are mail list threads determined only by the subject? In other words,
can I add my two cents to an existing topic just by typing in the correct
subject? Or do I have to reply to an existing email? Does Re: matter in
I.E. Would a new email w/ subject "Mailing List Questions" be in this
thread? Would "Re: Newbie Mailing List Questions" be in this thread? "Re:
Re: Newbie Mailing List Questions"?
2. I would like to combine my own "dictionary" code with suggestions made
in the recent thread about dictionaries/hash tables. I am guessing the
result will be a screen-full of code. I then would value input from people
like you to help refine it further. Is this mailing list a good place to go
back and forth on a screen-full of code? Are there other places?
3. Is there a wiki for Rebol? (Not the engine/source code, but a site I
can visit?) Specifically, I am looking for a place to read about and post
Rebol Idioms. For example, I saw some of Carl S's code that made an object,
and within the object he did a
set 'funcname func  [...
It would be interesting to learn more about this idiom (among others), and
when it is helpful.
Thanks in advance, and best regards,
