[REBOL] Re: Private/Public attributes

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 15-Nov-2002 10:04

Hi, Miguel, No, AFAICT. An object's context/namespace is easily accessed from outside. (Likewise for locals of functions, if you push the point.) If you like, you can think of this as a virtue, as it supports introspection/reflection (or whatever other buzzword you prefer), which allows an evaluation in process to e.g. inquire about, and change behavior depending on, the composition of objects being used within the computation. Incidentally, I recently read a remark by someone who saw the following in a header file... #define private public ...for a language whose identity you can guess! ;-) -jn- Miguel Lopez wrote:
