[REBOL] Re: Dialecting Tutorial

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 18-Jan-2004 10:40

Hi Behrang, BS> Where can I find some online dialecting tutorial? Brett Handley has written a PARSE tutorial: though it may not be what you had in mind as a "dialecting" tutorial. The Core docs have good info on PARSE as well. One of the best sources is this list. The library has some nice examples posted, but there are PARSE gurus here that can answer specific questions, and sometimes provide solutions to specific problems. When you get ready to dig into some code, VID is a great example of what you can do--but it's not light reading. It's not that there's a lot of code, but it is very dense. As far as tutorials on dialect (domain specific language) design, you could use non-REBOL resources for that: Some other links I had to some related items seem to be dead :(, and the books I have relate to the implementation aspect, not the language design aspect. -- Gregg
