[REBOL] Associative data store Re:(3)

From: rebol:keithdevens at: 14-Sep-2000 19:13

I really like the path idea. Is there any way to emulate an associative array without having to make a special object type? Very unfortunately, Rebol doesn't let you just do things like: assoc/key: "value" (if assoc/key doesn't actually exist yet) is there any way to cheat and do something like: (fake example that doesn't work) assoc: make hash! [] change assoc/key "dude" -------------------------------------------------------------------- It would be really really nice if RT could give us something like this (hint hint): assoc: make associative! [] assoc/key: "value" 'first could give us the keys and 'second could give us the values Bonus is, it doesn't require any new syntax... no funky assoc{'key'} or anything. :) Keith
