[REBOL] Compiler for Rebol ? Re:(6)

From: tim:johnsons-web at: 24-Sep-2000 8:50

Hi: I see that we have taken a thread more about strategy and marketing here, and I hope rebol team people are reading this. Interesting thing coming up here... I think. Koffice (KDE answer to Microsoft Office) is supposed to provide hooks to a number of languages, rather than a proprietory VBA as does MS-Office. Perhaps Carl and folks should consider looking into this and perhaps trying to make sure that Koffice provides such "hooks" for rebol. I could sure "dig it". It is reasonable to speculate that in the next year, in the area that I live in we will see a number of networks of small organizations running Windows on top of Linux through something like Win4Lin. With KOffice there would then be a cheaper alternative to Microsoft's expensive Office license. It then follows that a considerable amount of small-module programming would happen. I'm already putting together General Purpose modules for Ms-Access using VBA. I'd rather be doing that in rebol! :) -Tim [news--ted--husted--com] wrote:
