[REBOL] Short of supply

From: patrick:philipot:laposte at: 6-Jul-2003 15:30

Hi List, It seems to me that Rebol documentation is very short in list example. The SUPPLY fonction in fact is giving me a headache. For example, from the few examples I had found here and there, I thought the SUPPLY function was called once for each element of the list. This short piece of code proves me wrong. mydata: ["Red" "Green" "blue"] view center-face layout [ list 100x100 [ text 80 ] supply [ print count ;<------------------------- printing occurs every time the mouse goes over an element face/text: either count > length? mydata [""][pick mydata count] ] ] During my "research", I have found this exclamation from pekr

from May be things have changed... Is there any piece of didactic documentation, some SUPPLY tutorial or LIST for dummies out there? Regards Patrick
