[REBOL] Rebol# or Rebol on DotNET

From: andrew:martin:colenso:school at: 24-Dec-2003 22:40

Just been thinking through this, while learning how to write a Rebol parser in C# (it's very tricky without using Rebol's 'parse...). Looking at the lexer/parse combination, Rebol only seems to need a lexer, because the tokens are Rebol values. The only trickery is balanced braces {} for long string values, and balanced square brackets for blocks [], which could be handled by a stack in the lexer part. My questions are about the interface to .NET stuff. How would we fit Rebol and DotNET functions together? Internationalisation: is it OK to "expand" Rebol's definition of values? For example, a money! Datatype that allows British pounds symbol or Euro symbol? Andrew J Martin Attendance Officer & Grail Jedi. Colenso High School Arnold Street, Napier.
