[REBOL] What is a Mezzanine function really?/Was article on REBOL
From: tim:johnsons-web at: 29-Oct-2001 10:47
My question is: can MEZZANINE functions be really thought of as
virtual source code
Here's what the documenation says:
The source function displays the code for any mezzanine level or
Mezzanine functions are built-in functions implemented in REBOL. Native
are built-in functions implemented in machine code.
But I'm not sure that it means:
Since there is no source script for the mezzanine functions
doesn't that mean that the rebol binary is actually
COMPOSING (writing the source), and placing it in memory
as it boots?
Kind of 'do-ing a virtual script?
Would this be an example of rebol "writing its own code on the fly"?
I would welcome comments on this.
Trying to put together an article on rebol...
