[REBOL] Re: Re(2): 'parse-url - where defined?

Most of the contexts of interest are those associated with objects. I am too
tired right now to go into details, but see my previous response for more
info. Your questions are well taken. REBOL currently does not have a
built-in object browser, which makes exploring objects a bit tedious. And
the docs are somewhat behind.
You can learn a lot quickly using Nenads help.r which can browse into
objects. It works with both Core and View. You can download it at:
Just put do %your-path/help.r in your user.r. Then you can start by
>> help system
build -- (Type: date)
components -- (Type: block)
license -- (Type: string)
product -- (Type: word)
version -- (Type: tuple)
view -- (Type: none)
stats -- System statistics. Default is to return total memory
The sub-objects can then be accessed with path notation
help system/ports ;for example
And so on, drilling deeper and deeper.
In this way, you can fairly quickly learn about the words defined in all the

How did you discover this?
Did you know 'parse-url already or did you have to search?
How would you go about searching for a word
whose value is defined in some other context?
Is there a way of determining which
context a word's value is defined in?
Is there a way of listing all contexts?
