The problem is - interoperability .... having rebol parsers in another
languages would be interesting, but I am not sure it would be so
practical. Having Rebol supporting SOAP etc. XML kind of stuff would be
more interesting imo :-)
One interesting thing I noticed while negotiating with several company
partners .... we all know there is SOAP etc. kind of stuff,
web-services, but none is using it yet :-) Maybe companies are still
waiting for the right tools which support SOAP etc. in a more automatic
way, as in the end programmers would not need to care of SOAP etc. at
I haven't read all messages in this thread yet, but has anyone
considered PHP? I saw Perl mentioned and my opinion is that we could
easily leave Perl ... who would use it anyway? ;-) PHP is king of Unix
web related server scripting imo. It gains more and more attention ....
I would like to see some tests of language interoperability, e.g. mySQL
and PostGresSQL (or others) used with Rebol vs PHP ....
Anyway, probably a bit separate topic .....
