[REBOL] Re: change/at

Hi pat665, On Thursday, September 19, 2002, 5:59:35 PM, you wrote: p> test: reduce [false false false] The new betas also allow to write: test: [#[false] #[false] #[false]] p> How come it is so ? I frankly do not understand ! FALSE is a word, which in the global context of a "plain" REBOL interpreter has the value of a logic! "false". But if you don't evaluate it, it is just a word!. In the current release version of REBOL there is no way to make LOAD return a value of some types (such as logic!, none!, object!, function! etc.); you always need to do some evaluation. The beta versions introduce MOLD/ALL and the new syntax to directly represent all REBOL values.
