[REBOL] Re: Refinements

From: jan:skibinski:sympatico:ca at: 14-Nov-2002 11:29

Hi Joel,
> RDOIT! (REBOL Does Its Own Thing!)
RDIOT? Hmm.. A danger of acronyms :-) Once during development of a big numerical library for a language Xyz we have been tagging our documentation by XyzNUM- tags. Hundreds of such words. And one day a bored person from their marketing department caused us to change them all to XyzMATH because of possible association with XyzDUMB. Afraid that global search and replace would not work properly we had to do it on file by file basis.

I should have thought about it. Thanks. BTW, since I sort of feel uncomfortable with the NONE business (depending on the context) I often end up with doing "either not none? any xs [][]" . Jan
