[REBOL] An interesting issue with View beta
From: anton::lexicon::net at: 8-May-2002 11:06
I ran some of my programs with the new view
beta, and many of them suffered the same bug.
Look at this code, which captures the essence of the situation:
images: [ ... full of image!s ...] ; example
fr: 1 ; start at frame one
pic: image images/1 rate 30 feel [
engage: func [face action event][
if action = 'time [
fr: fr + 1 ; next frame
You can see the reference to images inside the engage function.
In the new view beta (184.108.40.206.1 6-May-2002), this reference
no longer resolves to the images block defined at the beginning,
as it used to. I am still trying to figure out why.
I noted that the face object contains an 'images facet.
probe images = face/images
is inserted in the engage function it prints false.
Anyone have any clues?
I have read the changes doc, but I don't see anything obvious.
Maybe it is due to the way paths are evaluated?
I was able to fix the bug by simply using a different word (frames),
but I want to understand why this has happened. It will probably
become clear with more familiarity.
