[REBOL] Re: Commercial-quality REBOL programmers needed

From: reffy:ulrich at: 16-Aug-2002 13:43

Yes, I think Rebol has a lot going for itself. I too have an interpretive language which is powerful. Define ouch obj ; elem evt { elem evt Is obj print 'Ouch you clicked on the thingie named: %{}' } v Is Ucase Join Reverse Split Date v:'title' Is 'Date string in reverse and upper cased' v:'name' 'font' 'w' 'hj' 'onclick' Is 'goober' 'bold' 35 'left' 'ouch' View v But, even though mine is a clever language, it is not a system, it is just a language. In fact, I would love to have some of Rebol's capabilities within my own language. In order for Rebol to take off, it seems to me that there should be an application capability which is developed in Rebol. It is the application that corporate America needs. Do you agree? And in defining a killer framework, Rebol wins big time, because the framework allows for many kinds of applications to be developed. So, I guess the question is are we trying to figure out a killer application which will propel Rebol into the forefront because of the application or just trying to enhance Rebol the language?
