[REBOL] Newbie Mailing List Questions

From: stasil213:yaho:o at: 18-Dec-2003 0:48

Greetings, 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 the subject? 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, Stan Silver
