That's Sherman. It's a compiler for an old version of Rebol. I believe it
won't work for recent versions of Rebol.

With Rebol/Command, this might not be an issue, as it's more a CGI and in
house tool, I believe.
For Rebol/View, this doesn't seem to be an issue, because the source code is
and to design .gif, .jpeg and Flash graphics, yet piracy of the "code" isn't
really a problem, because the "code" is embedded in the content.
For stand-alone, shrink-wrapped client use, like RebMail, a email client, or
similar programs, I can imagine that a future Rebol product would a
Rebol/View or Rebol/Core that can be packaged with a number of encrypted
scripts into one executable binary. That seems fairly obvious to me. I've
also CC-ed this to [feedback--rebol--com] just in case the Rebol crew haven't
thought of it yet.
