Limit on number of word definitions?

 [1/2] from: terry:depotcity at: 6-Feb-2001 16:33

Hello all. I recall reading about the limitations on the total number of words that can be defined? What is the total number of words, and when/will it be expanded? Thanks, Terry Brownell

Hi Terry, Here is a simple way to find out for any version of REBOL. REBOL/core (Experimental) Copyright 1997-2000 REBOL Technologies REBOL is a Trademark of REBOL Technologies All rights reserved.
>> repeat j 4000 [set to-word join 'word [j] j]
** Internal Error: No more global variable space ** Where: to-word ** Near: to word! :value
>> length? first system/words
== 4094
So current expers allow 4094 words total. Of course, they can be reused any number of times and also defined in many distinct contexts. -Larry
