[REBOL] best means of passing refinements from main to helper function? Re:

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 15-Sep-2000 16:14

This seems to be an occasionally reoccurring topic. In short I don't think anyone has come up with a simple elegant way of doing this. A few of us have come up with solutions which involve building the helper-function call/refinements string. You might find, however, that you would rather use a bunch of 'if statements. - Michael Jelinek [princepawn--MailAndNews--com]> on 09/15/2000 03:30:03 PM From: [princepawn--MailAndNews--com] on 09/15/2000 03:30 PM Please respond to [list--rebol--com] Sent by: Terrence Brannon <[princepawn--MailAndNews--com]> To: [list--rebol--com] cc: Subject: [REBOL] best means of passing refinements from main to helper function? I want to know the best way to propagate refinement selections (or their lack) to a function which actually does the processing for them. deduction: func [/use-month month-to-use /use-day day-to-use] [ rejoin [ "file-" either use-month [ month-to-use ] [ now/month ] either use-day [ day-to-use ] [ now/day ] ] ] main [/use-month month-to-use /use-day day-to-use ] [ ; --- dilemma: ; --- I can call deduction with ; --- a - no refinements ; --- b - either or 1 refinement ; --- c - both refinements ; and I dont want a bunch of hairy eithers and ifs to create ; all the various refinements to send to deduction ] terrence-brannon: [[princepawn--yahoo--com] perl-refugee myth-gamer] free-email: free-usenet: ; all the above is real REBOL code, believe it or not.
