[REBOL] Re: Private words in objects?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 5-Jul-2006 10:16

Hi Alberto, A> Somebody can clarify to me why rebol "objects" does not support A> protected (read only) variables ? REBOL was designed for building small systems, so choices like this lean towards making things as simple as possible, and may also have been due to implementation choices. REBOL 3 may offer something along these lines, since a lot of people have come to expect it from OO languages. You *can* do it today, but it takes extra effort. I thought I would do it a lot, once I figured out how (with the help of people here), but I've never used it in a production system. In your case, how would private words have helped? Did a word in an object get reset accidentally? -- Gregg
