I program in C, C++, rebol, python, VBA and Assembler. Have also done
commercial work in dBaseIII, and studied Pascal, Cobol, Vax Basic.
All things being equal, rebol is my favorite, however things aren't
always equal. <sigh>
For a small-scale CGI application, rebol would be my first choice:
IF my client found that acceptable, and most of my clients don't care.
I designed an online course (first semester : high-school freshman/sophomore
level) using rebol as the medium for an introduction to programming.
I rewrote one of my small projects (600 record database/15 fields) which
was originally done in C++. It took about a third of the time as
the "C++" edition.
I'm currently setting up a server written in Object-Oriented Ansi C.
I'll probably use several small rebol clients with it.
I would prefer that words like "elegant" and "powerful" be eliminated
from any conversation about computer programming languages. They
mean nothing to me.
I agree with pekr in that rebol has much maturing to do (and will do).
Given the increase of processor speeds, and the increasing legacy
of rebol code, along with the above-mention maturation,
I believe rebol may be the flagship language of the future.
