[REBOL] Re: paths & lookups & change

From: brett:codeconscious at: 22-Oct-2003 20:07

Hi Gabriele, Robert, Interesting comments about the Find - I took Robert to mean that he didn't need to use the word Find in his code or data structure, but I see your point that evaluation of the path will likely cause an internal search operation. I'm certainly not defending my code example - it was UGLY :^) Maybe this situation indicates that the "why" of Robert's need should be looked at? So Robert, Why did you want the special set-path form - to save your fingers or for some other reason? Gabriele, About your Modify function. It is for you to define how it executes, but I wonder whether this sample:
> >> modify b 'test func [v] [v + 1] > == 2 > >> modify b 'test func [v] [v + 1] > == 3
.. should instead store the function in the block rather than doing an internal evaluation on it. That way it becomes more complimentary to Select. Regards, Brett.
