What's "intuitive" in C, might seem "non-intuitive" in rebol. And vice versa. Even tho' C remains my "first" language for the time being, rebol will probably eventually take C's place and part of the reason is rebol's sheer productivity and it's closer resemblance to human language. I' m reading Elan's book. and as I progress through it, all rebol syntax is becoming more intuitive.

Amen to that! Am writing a server using my current legacy of C/C++ resources. I will then probably use rebol scripts as an interface. I would think that the more I learn of ports and networking, and the more I learn of rebol, then the use of ports and networking in rebol will become clearer.
