[REBOL] Re: Embedded objects - deviation

From: lmecir:mbox:vol:cz at: 16-Mar-2003 16:58

Hi Terry, sorry for the delay, I missed your question, when I looked at my mail last time...
> Interesting, but how would you save it, to say a flat file DB?
it would depend on the needs of the application, but it isn't hard, IMO. Every dynamic object (DO) you want to store to a DB should have an ID attribute. The saving function just needs to save the ID's of all dynamic objects, basic attributes (like the Name attribute in the example code or any other ordinary attributes). If an attribute of a DO is a DO, then you can save just its ID. This is sufficient to be able to "reconstruct" the state later. If you have got something specific in mind, just ask. Regards -L
