[REBOL] Re: postfix? -> prefix
From: rryost:home at: 18-Jul-2001 13:49
Anton, you're right! I never thought of trying prefix notation! Did
earlier REBOL/core's support that?
Your observation that prefix means "stack-based" seems to clash with the
Forth approach in which an operator can be applied to one or more results of
operations that were "left on the stack". With prefix syntax
the operator signals an intent to operate on the result((s) of one or more
future operations. I agree that "stack-based" isn't a clear concept, but
it's definitely not "Forth-like". I may be misusing terms, but prefix
operator is more like a function, which is followed by arguments.
