[REBOL] Re: The truth about scope

I have no idea what you really mean. :-) I think you don't talk about the position because of the block, or that the interpreter encounters the block later. My other guess was that a block is itself not automatically evaluated and thus the string inside might not change immediately, unless it gets evaluated again and maybe updates the string. (Looking at the block in any way, like printing it or probing it is already evaluating it, thus showing a change, for the case that it really only shows up after an new evaluation.) On the other side this shouldn't have anything to do with the value. :-) So ???? Pleaaaaasee tell meeee. I beg you. ;-) Besides that, I think I really just got what you meant with the "no-scope" statement. Not that it would change anything, but haven't seen the code is data thing too globally so far.
