[REBOL] functional replace function?
From: bry:itnisk at: 1-Nov-2002 10:53
I suppose this is possible but my Rebol is not good enough yet to see
the solution, (I say suppose because I am also worried that my mode of
thinking about the problem is colored by other languages)
I want to have two blocks, one block contains values to replace in a
string, the other block contains values that will be replaced
These values should be accessed from a function which I run against the
string. The string comes out the other end with values replaced.
This seems to me to be the smarter(more functional) structure,
unfortunately can't quite see my way to implementing it.
The dumber structure, which I can see but don't want to do cause it
Would be to iterate through the block of values to be replaced, with
each iteration get the answering index number from the block of values
that shall do the replacing and then run it against the string
replace/all string val1 val2
block1: next block1
any suggested readings, links?
