Copulae as transparent, assignment of verbs vs. assignment of nouns (vs. assignment of mapped nouns), immediate vs. latent evocations:
sum=:plus=:+ sum NB. On a single line, copulae are always transparent, except as the last operation, where display is supressed. + hello =: 'hi' goodbye =: hello goodbye NB. Nouns are always immediately replaced by their evocations hi plus=:+ sum=:plus sum NB. Higher nameclasses are latent. plus NB. So changing the previous name .. changes the cascaded name NB. This is not true of nouns, but there's a way to emulate teh NB. behaviour, using mapped files. $ 'h' f. NB. Immediate $ 'h' ~ NB. Latent
