[REBOL] R: Re: When to use refinements? : was => {Re: Re: R: Re: VID: choice arg

From: riusa::email::it at: 30-Jan-2002 23:45

I'm a software developer since 1980. I developed with many programming languages, including C, some CPU assemblers, Pascal and Object Pascal, Python, some tools like Macromedia Flash, Asymetrix Toolbook, etc... etc... These "traditional" languages have one common thing: "coherence", consistency . Even in English language, in Italian language (my language!) there is coherence .

I think Jason is right. Even if I'm using a "dialect", even this one should be "coherent". When I find an exception in a programming language, I must learn either the standard syntax plus the exceptions. I admit it is not always easy to choose if using refinements or standard function options. -- Prendi GRATIS l'email universale che... risparmia: Sponsor: Obiettivo Laurea? vuoi migliorare il tuo metodo di studio?
