[REBOL] Re: OT, was Re: What's Native

Hi Mauro, On Wednesday, June 23, 2004, 4:42:51 PM, you wrote: MF> Rebol is a good scripting tool. But it is just a simple tool.

But the rest, it's like comparing apples to oranges. It's like saying that a Fiat 500 is basically the same thing as an intergalactic cruiser --- they're both vehicles. MF> but they are used as they were thought: as scripting languages. I use REBOL to write applications. They are used by people. Doing them in Java or C++ would require about 10x the time, the code would probably be 10x bigger, with 10x bugs and so on.
