[REBOL] with ?

From: arolls::bigpond::net::au at: 4-Dec-2000 14:39

Hi all, You know how other languages have a statement like this: with (obj){ name = "object 1" size = 23 } which is to access elements of the obj object, without having to use a path notation like: obj/name obj/size etc. Does rebol have anything like this? Could a function be built into an object that accepts a block of code and does it inside the object, therefore no longer needing to explicitly refer to obj/name, just name, etc ? For example, if the special function is called 'with, the call would be something like: obj/with [name: "object 1" size: 23] The code then gets done inside the object. This should be equivalent to: obj/name: "object 1" obj/size: 23 It's not urgent, just interesting. (My little attempt just now failed. -> with: func [code][do code]) Anton.
