[REBOL] Re: Help With Query

From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 19-Feb-2004 18:41

yep! but
>> type? 'this/is/a/path
== path! which means when evaluating a lit-path it returns a path same thing for word! and lit-word! you must then evaluate the path to get the data it points to. To evalute a path you must use 'DO and include the path in a block. I don't know why 'DO won't evaluate a path directly... I think we can assume that to be a limitation (bug ;-). HTH! -MAx PS: people on this list often use the tick mark within the text to identify rebol words and functions (like with 'DO above). but generally do not actualy include the tick when typing the word on the command line... ;-)
