[REBOL] Re: Context misery

From: carl:rebol at: 5-Jun-2001 10:02

Ah, but what are you really trying to do? From your example, the variable is not really dynamic (because you use exactly the string you pass in for it.) So, just pass the name as a name. myfunc: func [name] [set name copy [1 2 3]] myfunc 'example print example That will allow 'example to be part of any context, including objects and locals to functions. You can also use the shorthand: myfunc: func ['name] [set name copy [1 2 3]] myfunc example print example And, if you need "code" as part of it: myfunc: func [name code] [set name do code] myfunc 'example [1 + 2] print example You get the idea, -Carl
