[REBOL] REBOL song

From: nick::guitarz::org at: 5-Jan-2009 10:18

It was a late nite on AltME... The first two lines of the chorus could use some variation every time: -------------------------------------------- I got some operators and a little block code And with VID I'm gonna build a new window. I'm gonna hack it out, simple and fast And make a killer REBOL app that lasts. They tell me I should give Python a try But they don't know how that'd make me cry. Takes ten times as long to install that mess And still gives an error at some memory address. REBOL REBOL - Get it done fast REBOL REBOL - and have a blast REBOL REBOL - It's in my path REBOL REBOL - Thanks Mr. Sassenrath Gonna take some strings and put 'em in a series And loop through so fast, it'll bring you to your knees. 'Bind, 'set, 'use, 'context, and 'get Once you get how they work, they're no sweat. I never felt this way about anything else Not C++, JAVA, or Haskell. It's 2am, and I'm almost done but I'm codin' on, cause it's so much fun. REBOL REBOL - Get it done fast REBOL REBOL - and have a blast REBOL REBOL - It's in my path REBOL REBOL - Thanks Mr. Sassenrath Regular expressions in PERL are alright But let me loose with parse - I can do that all night. PHP's ok, for data on the net but nothing's slicker than an IOS Reblet. Foreach 100 lines they have to code I just use a dialect to lighten my load. And just when I'm stuck on the toughest part Some guru writes code that looks like REBOL art. REBOL REBOL - Get it done fast REBOL REBOL - and have a blast REBOL REBOL - It's in my path REBOL REBOL - Thanks Mr. Sassenrath Delphi, C, Ruby, LUA - no more. When REBOL came along, they went out the door. You can't get a thing done with those old dogs And I don't want to run another resource hog. PC, MAC, Linux - they all work for me Heck, I can even do OpenBSD. We even have a plug-in for your browser Ooh look, those BASIC guys just peed their trowsers :) REBOL REBOL - Get it done fast REBOL REBOL - and have a blast REBOL REBOL - It's in my path REBOL REBOL - Thanks Mr. Sassenrath When you need function help, who wants to grab a book, It's built right into REBOL - you know where to look. One half a meg - that's all it takes To get rid of all your coding headaches. It may be tough to convince your boss To try out REBOL, even though it's not FOSS. But the best things in life are still free It's just the REBOL source, that we'll never see. REBOL REBOL - Get it done fast REBOL REBOL - and have a blast REBOL REBOL - It's in my path REBOL REBOL - Thanks Mr. Sassenrath Now I spend all my time on AltME While I pour another cup of black coffee Another job done, I'm crankin' 'em out Just wish that REBOL could make a darn printout. I never said it's perfect, but I don't care REBOL keeps me from pulling out my hair. Without it I'd really have to give up And install some 100 megabyte setup.
