[ALLY] Datatype numbering and the Missing Datatypes Re:(2)

From: carl::rebol::com at: 21-Sep-2000 20:30

You guys are uncovering the little secrets. Was wondering how long it would take. A few things: the correspondence between the numbers you are seeing and datatypes is coincidental. The numbers are actually native, component relative vectors. The datatypes bootstrap the system into consciousness, so they are the first in the table. BTW, never, NEVER, use the numbers, as they can change from release to release. In the future, that is a fact. I don't care if you are Dpaint, you will break [historical reference here]. Symbol! is only used in the symbol table. It has no external use. These "unused" words are unset after the boot. So, what does context! do? -Carl At 9/21/00 08:47 PM +0200, you wrote:
