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

From: larry:ecotope at: 30-Jan-2001 21:21

Hi Anton, 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
OBJECT: system WORDS: build -- (Type: date) components -- (Type: block) license -- (Type: string) product -- (Type: word) version -- (Type: tuple) view -- (Type: none) SUB-OBJECTS: console error locale network options ports schemes script standard user words FUNCTIONS: stats -- System statistics. Default is to return total memory allocated. 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 accessible objects.

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? Anton.
