[REBOL] Re: Rebol Limitations?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 9-Feb-2003 21:20

Hi Terry, TB> Ok. Obviously you wouldn't create performance based applications in .R, (no TB> MMORPGs) but what about something more complex, more utilitarian eg: TB> Memory Managers TB> FireWalls TB> Burners (An api to the drive?) TB> Data Recovery TB> Anti-Virus TB> OCR TB> etc etc. Like most things, it depends. :) I think there are apps where REBOL has lots of leverage and others where it doesn't. You also have to consider what other factors must be taken into account. For instance, what is the development timeframe, what is the *required* performance, how important is portability, etc. My take on it is that you have to look at each particular project and look at all the options for building it before judging whether a particular tool is suitable or not. -- Gregg
