I have downloaded the entire Library in a folder named DOC.
I store there all the documentations I have been able to collect about
Rebol: The CookBook, The How-to, Zine articles, Ladislav document. I have
also a special folder named "Good to know" where I store bits and tricks
gathered from my own experience or from the Mailing List.
After getting a more precise idea of the different parts needed, I start a
new text document to write it down. Then I start a console session to test
some points directly. I keep validated piece of code also in my text
Very often, at this stage, some help is required from the ML.
Finally if a GUI is needed, I start a simple layout which is refined
progressively and noted in my text document too.
At this stage, or earlier, my wife call me for this big thing that cannot
wait and I am glad to have all my work written down waiting for me until I
can resume a few hours or days later (depending on the big thing).
