[REBOL] Re: More about Sentences & AMD (Associative Model of Data)
From: robbo1mark:aol at: 17-May-2002 7:08
Another good thing about triples as a storage mechanism in REBOL is that by using issue!'s
as the KEY you don't use up space the system/words global name space.
data-store: [ #1 [#source-id #verb-id #target-id] #2 [#source-id #verb-id #target-id]
using an issue! block! association we can use paths
to extract the block! of stored triples and their contents i.e.
== [#source-id #verb-id #target-id]
By also making the source verbs and targets a unique #xxxx issue! identity-string again
we preserve the global namespace.
What do you think? If you are interested I would like to explore this Associated Model
of Data and a "Sentences" like system for REBOL more fully.
Either email me directly or feel free to post here as well, we could use one of our yahoo-groups
either web_dialect or oscar-project as a working space for just now if you and anybody
else is interested.
Please let me know - anybody else feel free to join in.
