[REBOL] facts we will have to face ...

From: petr:krenzelok:trz:cz at: 23-Oct-2001 18:51

Hi, reactions to interview really seem as a little bit of advertisement of rebol fan ;-) But I think we will have to face following voices in future: ---------- Since apparently everyone here but me is a REBOL worshiper, I've got some questions... (I would look for the answers on my own, but I have to leave in a about 2 minutes, so I figured this would give all of you something to do :-) Can REBOL do audio? Does it support MP3 native? How about more obsure audio formats? If not, is it fast enough to decode it if you wrote the decoder in REBOL itself? What about movies? Can it play sorenson quicktimes? Does it have support for AVI? Once again, you should be able to add in movie support or codec support by writing it in REBOL itself assuming it truely is a complete platform like they say it is. I thought I had some more questions, but I can't think of them now. Gotta run. Sean ---------- I mean - if Rebol should be regarded being platform, it would have to enable us to implement "whatever" in the language itself, not being dependant upon language kernels directly - I mean - sound, video, math, etc., the area where rebol speed will be badly noticed. I think that maybe RT should prepare some FAQ answers regarding this issue, because if Rebol will become popular, newcomers will ask about possibility to compile and speed things up .... -pekr-
