[REBOL] Re: Troube Calling Function within Object

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 28-Nov-2000 14:14

I followed your thought right up until: table: "player" Now, a whole bunch of scope-related questions pop up, and I don't see how to give an answer without looking at the full script. Probably all you have to do is convert the string "player" to a word, then bind it to the context which you've defined 'player as the object.

Let's say I have an object called player. Within that object I have created a function called find-records. find-records expects a block to be passed to it as an argument. My problem is this: I want to call this function using the value of a variable called table and return the value to a higher calling function. So far, I have gotten this to work: return player/find-records next request (request is the block I want to pass, excluding the first value). Now, let's say I do this: table: "player" How do I call the function now? I have tried about a million different variations of: return to-word to-path reduce [table 'find-records] next request (I use return here because I am calling this line from a higher level function and I want to return the value). But nothing seems to work! Sometimes, it appears I was able to actually call the function within the object, but then the argument won't get passed. Sometimes, I think I got the function to be called WITH the arguments, but I can't get the return value from the function to be returned by this line. I have read and re-read the parts in the manual dealing with words, functions, evalution, etc. and I just can't find what I am doing wrong. I can email my script to anyone who needs to see it. I appreciate any help that can be given. Jamey Cribbs
