[REBOL] Re: Evaluating if's

From: brett:codeconscious at: 2-Jul-2002 17:45

I should have mentioned also that ANY makes a nice "or" condition: ANY [ this or-this or-even-this or-finally-this] reduces each expression it encounters through the block not stopping until it exhausts all the expressions or it encounters one that results in a value that is not NONE and not FALSE. So ANY [1 = 3 now 3] will return the current time Brett. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Charles" <[chalz--earthlink--net]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Tuesday, July 02, 2002 1:51 PM Subject: [REBOL] Evaluating if's
