[REBOL] Re: On list! inconsistency [was Re: WYSIWYG programming]

From: rishi:picostar at: 2-Nov-2000 23:58

Hi Andrew. thanks for this info. I don't remember reading about system/words/... in the rebol users guide. Can you explain what this represents? Is system an object? Are all rebol mezainne and native functions in system object? Better yet, can someone explain the general heirarchy of rebol. ie: what is in system object? what is in system/word object? etc.. This would be really helpful! I am now assuming that 'insert function is actually just a reference to 'system/words/insert function. BTW, I don't see why 'insert would be more inefficent than 'append in a queue (implemented as an array) since an item has to be inserted in one end of a queue and removed from the other end. As far as I know, I had 2 options: OPTION1 insert at head of list remove at tail of list or OPTION2 insert at tail of list remove at head of list I simply chose the option 1. I don't see why any of these would be more efficient than the other if there are about equal number of insertions and removals (if implemented as array like I have). Rishi
