[REBOL] Rebol/Gotcha Handling previously defined words
From: tim:johnsons-web at: 10-Dec-2003 10:30
Well, I did it again, and punished myself severely for the
transgression, but I can't bring back the time I lost....
I created a subroutine in a context and called it 'reduce. And I forgot
to either redefine or provide an absolute path for system/words/reduce.
Bad Tim, bad, bad Tim!
This poses the need for a wonderful one-liner that would throw an
error or warning in case a word is defined and used in a context that
already exists in system/words.
I'm just starting to dig into lisp as a part of learning emacs and I
believe that language does have such safeguards, but I haven't been able
to get to that understanding yet.
Any ideas? comments?
