[REBOL] What can we do? was Re: Curl

From: dvydra2::yahoo::com at: 16-Mar-2001 18:05

Elan, I have been trying to expose the Extreeme Programming community to REBOL, check out - look for REBOL The Bay Area REBOL User Group is planning to create a public server with all kinds of REBOL related goodies. Re Open Source, many of my friends are not very happy with REBOL/Core not being open source. I am not a C programmer, so I don't care, but they DO. I would love to use REBOL to script my Java apps, but so far I have not heared from RT that they appreciate that side of the market. Again, look at JPython. I see tremendous and immediate value in using REBOL/View with Java-based AppServers, but again I have not found any supporters in the REBOL community. Having said all that, I am still very happy that I found REBOL and I am having a lot of fun -- which is the important thing, isn't it? Regards, David --- Elan <[rebol--techscribe--com]> wrote:
