As we contemplate re-stylizing operations to embrace enfix more, one kind of historically ugly construct that could use an improvement is ALSO.
Consider this line from IN-DIR:
also do block change-dir old-dir
This is a shorthand for writing:
(temp: do block, change-dir old-dir, temp)
But this can be done just fine with ELIDE (!)
(do block, elide change-dir old-dir)
So wouldn't it be more interesting if ALSO could be in the same family as THEN and ELSE, perhaps being like a THEN that doesn't modify the result?
tester: func [num] [ switch num [ 1 [<one>] 2 [<two>] ] also [ print "It was one or two" ] else [ print "It was neither one nor two" ] ] >> tester 1 It was one or two == <one> ; the ALSO branch ran, but didn't modify the overall result >> tester 3 It was neither one nor two
I like that it's the same number of letters as THEN and ELSE.
