[REBOL] Re: R: Mutability and sameness - a new puzzle

From: g::santilli::tiscalinet::it at: 23-Jul-2001 19:05

Hello Romano! On 23-Lug-01, you wrote: RT> Do you think that when one changes the Binding of a word, RT> Rebol delete the old word and creates a newer one? I think it RT> change only a propriety of a word, leaving the rest the same. This is an interesting question. I usually ask this kind of questions to REBOL itself:
>> block: [a]
== [a]
>> a: 1
== 1
>> obj: make object! [a: 2] >> get first block
== 1
>> get bind first block in obj 'self
== 2
>> get first block
== 1
>> get in obj first block
== 2
>> get first block
== 1 Because of this reason, I tend to believe REBOL's creating a new word. Of course, it might just be that FIRST is creating a new word, but I consider this quite unlikely.
