Yeah, it seems like I read "of" instead of "for" in the original question ;-) But replying to the real question, then: This would force REBOL Tech. to rewrite the REBOL interpreter in JAVA, and I sincerely doubt that they have resources (employees, time, etc.) for that. Besides, do any platforms exist for which there is a JVM but no REBOL interpreter? I cannot think of any (perhaps the forthcoming MAJC-based systems, but I don't know the timeline for those), and if there aren't any such platforms, nobody would gain anything from a JAVA implementation of REBOL. Just my thoughts... Kind regards, -- Ole Friis <[ole_f--post3--tele--dk]> Amiga is a trademark of Amiga Inc.
