[REBOL] Re: Directory

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 14-Jan-2004 11:53

Hi Chris, CS> Does the same hold true for write/binary? You've gotten answers to this, but I'll add that one of the great benefits of REBOL is its wide array of datatypes. Using them effectively will make a big difference in how you use REBOL--not to mention how you think and feel about it. :)
>> help datatype!
in the console will get you a list of datatypes. Look them up in the Core docs and play with them to see how they work. Then look at how the pseudo-types work (things like series! or any-block!), and how you can use type-interrogation functions (e.g. any-string?, function?) to determine type. HTH! -- Gregg
