[REBOL] Re: [bind] Patrick's pages ; using 'local ; using bind/copy

From: ptretter:charter at: 14-May-2003 20:13

Cool now lets ponder some more stuff like this: a: context [b: 1 c: 2] a/self: 3
>> probe a
make object! [ b: 1 c: 2 ]
>> a/self
== 3 You can assign a value to the objects /self refinement only after the object has been defined. Its not particularly apparent as you can see by the probe. So where is this value? It appears to be local to 'a but acts globally in some respects. now do: second a == [3 1 2] But yet it still acts an object You would obviously have to use this at your own risk as many functions might not function correctly.
