[REBOL] Is REBOL interpreted or byte-compiled? Re:

From: tim:johnsons-web at: 29-Aug-2000 13:25

Howdy: As I understand your question: Rebol is interpreted. Even if it were byte-compiled, I presume that you would still have function calls, but optimized. Furthermore, in the case of Python or Elisp (as in Emacs) doesn't the interpreter need to be present to "interpret" the byte-compiled syntax? This is a interesting question and I hope there is more response to it and further: I believe that the term "byte-compile" has different implementations in Java as opposed to Python. And maybe this is something in Rebol's future. After all, I have seen the Rebol Development Team pay close attention to suggestions from List members. See 'ya Tim [princepawn--lycos--com] wrote:
