I'm just starting with OM and playing around with the tutorials.
I slightly changed tutorial #4 and run into something strange.
If i run the script as posted below, all works as expected. But when i change the function reverse to nreverse (and nreverse is the oficially documented name of the function)
the omn result will leave the right hand empty. Why ist that? And why does reverse work as i expect it to work?
And, another thing: i dont understand what the term seed will do. Will it make random functions behave always the same as long as the seed is the same?
...and what does the number following the seed mean?
Thank you !!
