[TAO] value() to obtain pointer functionality

Well, it all started in 1987.


("a"), and (quote & "a" & quote) are not the same thing at all. One is a literal and the other is a variable.



 put 1 into a
put "a" into b
put value(b)


You could have just "put b". But in any case, the variable "a" was created and loaded with a "1". Then the variable "b" was created and loaded with the literal "a". The two never spoke to each other.


Is this what you meant? It is harder to read my post than understand it.

If someone is going to tell me that I just forgot this, and it's well-known
behavior, I'm going to have a small cow, because I was of the impression
that we were pointer-less.  Maybe not.

put 1 into a
put "a" into b
put value(b)


Welcome to the Tao of LiveCode.  Again.  Grrrrrrrrrrrr.  All those wasted
DO statements.
