[REBOL] Re: order of evaluating expressions..

From: brianwisti:y:ahoo at: 23-Dec-2004 10:10

Hi Eric, Order of evaluation doesn't really bug me, because computer languages are not bound to operate by the same precedence rules as mathematics. Rebol doesn't seem that odd to me, especially after getting the hang of languages like Lisp. Those syntax rules are there for a reason - probably something to do with making execution faster, but it's not like I know. Besides, I can always use parentheses whenever I need to make precedence more explicit, same as I always do in languages with algebraic notation :-) Kind Regards, Brian Wisti --- Eric Haddix <[eric--ehrichweiss--com]> wrote:
