[REBOL] Re: more than one pane was: The big idea of Rebol

From: anton:lexicon at: 5-Jun-2002 3:30

Petr, Yes, totally! I had plenty of confused times with VID. But I don't think a "brute force" copy/deep function helps at all. The problem is one of understanding. We need nice tools for seeing the situation, not just blindly copying everything. You see what I mean? When we want to copy things, we want to be selective, otherwise we become very inefficient. I think a deep/copy would be useful for VID only if it has really good options for selective copying. It must be able to ignore certain objects like system/view/vid etc. Such a useful function is very hard to write and would require lots of tweaking and maintenance as View and VID evolve. (I think so anyway, maybe not). Anton.
