Composing a function from string

 [1/3] from: tim:johnsons-web at: 1-Dec-2001 8:04

Hello All: Not long ago, I saw a short thread that mentioned that one could dynamically create a rebol function from a string. Does anyone have information on that? Either the thread or some ideas? Thanks Tim

== "myfunc: func [x][print x]"
>> do hold >> myfunc "hello"
