[REBOL]How to distinguish between rebol values (native, action, value)

 [1/2] from: tim:johnsons-web at: 28-Nov-2000 17:47

Hello: I'm curious here: Consider the following rebol words: parse find append. Then invoke help for each of them. For parse, rebol says that parse is a native value For find, rebol says that find is an action value For append, rebols says that append is a function value To this ol' C-dog, they all act like functions to me, but you see, I'm putting up an on-line class on programming using rebol, and I could use some help on clearifying the distinctions between native, action, and value. Thanks Tim

Hi Chaz:
> Where would I sign up for your online class, and how much?
I'm sorry to say that this class is exclusive to a school district in Alaska and targets 9th and 10th graders. Very basic programming 101. I'm just the designer, neither an instructor nor in control of any management decisions, but it is possible that the exclusive status may change after a couple of semesters of testing. Frankly, I think the best way for an adult with some background to learn rebol is to buy both Elan's and Ralph's books and make use of this wonderful mailing list! Regards Tim
