[REBOL] Re: Binding operators

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 8-Sep-2001 20:51

Hello Karl! On 08-Set-01, you wrote: KR> When using bind on code with operators (and, xor, etc) the KR> operators *sometimes* cause a script error. Below is code KR> which demonstrates the problem. Can anyone explain this? I'm afraid infix operators are almost a kludge in REBOL. Words such as +, *, AND etc. are probably handled before the actual execution. Personally, I would vote for having prefix notation only, and a dialect that handles precedence etc. for doing math (I posted an example of this on the list some time ago --- I can repost if people is interested, or maybe I can add it to the script library...).
