[REBOL] Re: The truth about scope

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 13-Apr-2005 22:05

Hi Peter, GI>>> Words refer to values, they don't contain them P> But surely a word is simply a value that is a reference to another value P> which in turn could be a reference to another value (and so on) ? Of course, if the values referred to are words.
>> d: 1 c: 'd b: 'c a: 'b
== b
>> a
== b
>> get get get a
== 1 The mindset shift, for me, is to be conscious that the value exists independently of the word. That is, words refer to values that exist somewhere . -- Gregg
