Making new infix operators ?

 [1/2] from: geza:lakner:helka:iif:hu at: 19-Apr-2001 19:11


Hello, REBOLers ! Just for a bit of "syntactic sugar" :-) : Is it possible to define new infix operators ? I tried :
>> ||: make op! ... etc.
** Script Error: Cannot use make on datatype! value It would be a very nice feature ( la Prolog, or C++) to define (or "overload") some operators.

Hi Geza Sorry, it is not possible to define new infix operators in REBOL. It would be a nice feature, but likely would require major changes to the interpreter. -Larry ----- Original Message ----- From: "Geza Lakner MD" <[geza--lakner--helka--iif--hu]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Thursday, April 19, 2001 10:11 AM Subject: [REBOL] Making new infix operators ?
