bind


Name:
bind - recursively replaces executable operator names by their values.
Synopsis:
proc bind --> proc  
Examples:
{1 2 add} bind --> {1 2 +add+}  
if you know the arguments are integer,
{1 2 add_ii} will be the fastest choice, but there will be no
sli-level typechecking any more!
Description:
 
bind iterates through the given procedure object and replaces names which are bound to
tries or functions by their values.
bind works recursively and processes any nested procedure object it encounters.
bind uses the current dictionary context to perform its operation. Thus, changing
the dictionary context after bound was applied has no effect on the name-lookup
of operators during the execution of the procedure.

bind removes some execution overhead which is due to name-lookup. Thus, a bound procedure
executes 10%-50% faster.

Parameters:
proc	- procedure to be bound
