Reduce question

 [1/3] from: rebol:ccsducto:ar at: 13-Apr-2006 13:13


Hi all, I don't understand this difference
>> a: 1
== 1
>> b: 2
== 2
>> f1: [a < b]
== [a < b]
>> reduce f1
== [true]
>> f2: to-block "a < b"
== [a < b]
>> reduce f2
** Script Error: a word has no context ** Near: a < b
>> = f1 f2
== true Can someone help me? Thanks CÚsar

Hi Cesar,
>>> f2: to-block "a < b"
CC> == [a < b]
>>> reduce f2
CC> ** Script Error: a word has no context CC> ** Near: a < b When you use TO-BLOCK, the words are not bound in any way. Notice that the error says that A has no *context*, it doesn't say it has no *value* (as an unset word would). You can use LOAD and it should work fine, though it depends on what you're trying to do. -- Gregg

Others can better explain why that doesn't work, but using LOAD on the string will give you the result you want...

== [true] -- Carl Read.
