[REBOL] Re: On mutability and sameness

Hi, again, Minor update to previous message... Ladislav Mecir wrote:

The oddity I described appears to reside in the /DATE "refinement" itself, based on this:
>> a: now == 6-Jun-2001/9:05:53-5:00 >> a/date == 6-Jun-2001 >> a/date/date == 6-Jun-2001 >> a/date/date/date/date/date/day == 6
so that /DATE behaves less like a component selector and more like a function that takes a (complete) DATE! value and returns another DATE! value with the TIME! component set to none. -jn-
