[REBOL] Re: Delete Non-Global Words

Maybe no one wants to give you the bad news... Once a word has been defined, the name remains in first system/words for the life of the console. Only way to get rid of it is to stop and restart again. Doesn't matter if the word is unset in all contents; the name remains. A name is only in there once regardless of how many contexts it is in, so these two functions: ff: func [/local aa bb cc] [] aa: func [/local ff bb cc] [] Add only four words (aa bb cc and ff). That's one way of reducing the number of words you have. But you must have a fairly large program if you are running out if words. So maybe you need to upgrade to the later versions -- they have room for 8000+ words. Or you might be running out because you are doing load: load "xx yy zz" will add three words even though you never intended xx yy zz to be words -- you can see that with: last first system/words Try to-block instead. to-block "ww vv uu" ;; does not create three new words.
