[REBOL] Re: Unwanted Duplicate Data in Text Fields

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 7-Nov-2003 13:29

Hi Ted, TS> But why is the text that is entered into one text field automatically TS> propagated to all of the other empty fields in every record without TS> explicitly specifying it Because of this line: loop 2 [append record ""] If you change it to loop 2 [append record copy ""] ; << note the added COPY you should get the expected result. When you tell REBOL to use "" each time, it uses the *same* string for all of them, not individual copies of an empty string. When you change one, they all changed because they're all pointing to the same place in memory where that one string lives, which they are all referring to. -- Gregg
