[REBOL] Re: Sherman Re:(2)

Hello [carlos--revistaeletronica--com--br]! On 18-Ago-00, you wrote: c> So once existed a REBOL compiler.

REBOL 1.0 was very close to Scheme, and Sherman is a REBOL to Scheme compiler, written in Scheme. It has some limitations with respect to the interpeted REBOL 1.0, too. REBOL 2.0 is very different, and is probably more difficult to translate to Scheme (mainly because it's more powerful :). This doesn't mean that a translator for a subset of REBOL isn't possible, but IMHO it wouldn't be very useful. (Not that I am an expert of Scheme, but I assume compiled Scheme has its limitations, too.) I'd more likely create a new compiled language, if that's really needed.
