"Overloading" Rebol functions: Need advice
[1/3] from: tim:johnsons-web at: 8-Aug-2001 17:08
I have in the past tried hard to avoid using rebol function words in objects: Stack overflow is the least of my worries, 'cuz it is so obvious. I'm worried about the not-so-obvious "gotchas". for instance 'input is such an obvious choice for a "hand-rolled" cgi object that creates an input form. Using it, however "overloads" the the mezzanine 'input. In another case, I'd like to use the following refinements to a user-define function next last first back Any caveats with any case?

Works fine for me. I consider it one of the more powerful aspects of REBOL, and it seems it was made to do it very effectively. Just to set you on to the right direction... dont think of 'input as being overloaded, just in a different context, which may have a different meaning--or not. --Ryan Tim Johnson wrote:
