[REBOL] generalities of addresses and values... Re:(2)

From: rishi:picostar at: 9-Oct-2000 22:59

ok. I think I get it now. Everything is basically done as a reference. Even setting words. This is much simpler than what I was thinking :-) ei: a: 5 b: a in this example, b is a reference to a (right?). The thing that was confusing me was that the copy function doesn't always create a new copy. In deep series, it creates a reference to copied value....strange... By the way, is there any way to prove that b is a reference to a ( in the above example) ? I know you can do it if you set the value of as a series datatype (by using insert or other series function). But how do you prove that b references a for number datatypes?
