[REBOL] Re: Core 2.5.5 Beta Versions

Hi Ladislav, On Sunday, February 23, 2003, 7:48:54 PM, you wrote: LM> I don't know your proposal, but I suspect, that its feasibility was LM> questionable (for the current interpreter implementation). On the contrary, I think it would be very easy to implement. I just think the interpreter should reset out-of-range series values to the series tail when they are evaluated. I.e.: a: "12345" b: skip a 2 clear a ; nothing happens to b here index? b ; == 1 (b is reset to tail b as soon as it is evaluated) insert a "12345" index? b ; == 1 This way it would be like if out-of-range series did not exist at all; I think it would be much less confusing (as out-of-range series are not useful, so I don't need that concept in the language).
