[REBOL] Nested Series

From: eric:mccinc at: 20-Oct-2000 9:46

Hey Guys, I hope yall can help me with this one. I realize that this may be a simple concept that I just may be missing the boat on. (I sure hope so, I would hate to think I was stupid. lol) Anyway, I have data that is best represented by a nested structure in the form of [document [node1 [Subnode1 data1 data2] [Subnode2 [subnode3 data2 data2 data3] ] ] [node2 data1 data2] [node3 [subnode1 data1 data2] ] ] This is much like the values returned by the parse-xml function. I hade in fact considered using the xml to represent my data in a file. My problem is that I need to manipulat this structure based in the node names. I need the capability to insert update and delete. Like I said I may be just missing something here but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I had thought of using index values off of the find or select but that is not support. I realize that this is basic core stuff to rebol, I am just having real trouble getting my mind around. The structure keeps behaving in ways that I do not expect, I realize this is a fault on my part, but I could use a little explanation. Please realize that I am new to rebol (though an instant convert) and this is VERY diffrent from the java code I usually wright. Thanks every one.
