[REBOL] Re: Cookbook submissions idea
From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 5-Jan-2004 20:13
something like this:
-words are not variables.
!! words are LIKE variables with context. !!
-there are no statements in rebol
!! only expressions !!
creating your own "statements"
- the 'ENUM example (generating words with values based on list of words )
- the 'UNLESS example (now part of view 1.3)
- the 'STATEMENT example (a function which striped of return value)
example that creating functions is actually an expression like all the rest.
Things we could mirror in a real-time rebol doc viewer / web page cookbook tool:
-per word examples. one index page per rebol word.
would include code (preferably one or two lines)
and generated effect (print result, view face, etc...)
some explanations are also a must, of course (like why or how).
-per facet examples. one separate index page per FACE facet.
numerous examples for each facet.
-per style examples. one separate index page per standard vid style.
numerous examples of each VID style and how it works/reacts
All submitted as make doc (pro) files, as plain text, or as ubber simple html with strict
guidelines (offending layouts not included in cookbook).
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
