Quick tip: In my book REBOL FOR DUMMIES (order it at, I show how PHP code embeds in REBOL scripts. Ah, but what if you want to call a REBOL script from within PHP code? If your server is Apache and runs PHP4, it's very simple: <?PHP virtual ("cgi-bin/banner.r"); ?> Why would you want to? I am a firm believer in hybrid programming--combining the strengths of two or more scripting languages for a greater whole than either of the parts can provide. In specific, while REBOL blows PHP away in most aspects, PHP provides exceptionally powerful MySQL (and other SQL) support. So the intermixing of scripting languages often gives a quick and elegant solution. Opinions welcome. And you can always demand a recount<g>. --Ralph Roberts
