[REBOL] getting at it

From: hallvard:ystad:helpinhand at: 6-Feb-2002 14:51

Hello everyone I have the word 'to-display that I perform some checks on. In the example below, 'to-display, as you can see, refers to the prin function. How can I make rebol tell me what type? 'to-display's reference is?
>> type? :to-display
== path!
>> mold :to-display
== "system/words/prin"
>> type? get :to-display
** Script Error: get expected word argument of type: any-word ** Near: type? get :to-display
I get nowhere with 'get. I believe this has got to do with the function being refered to _within_ system/words, because it seems to work otherwise:
>> type? :prin
== native!
>> type? :system/words/prin
** Script Error: prin is missing its value argument ** Near: type? system/words/prin
Is there a way to 'get at system/words/prin (or other functions within paths), so that I may look at the source or lookup its type? ~H
