[REBOL] Re: Rebol for .NET

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 12-May-2004 11:27

Hi Giuseppe, GC> Do you think that a REBOL for .NET would be possible ? It will GC> surely open the door to any hardware which has a .NET framework GC> available ! It's very unlikely. .NET compiles down to an internal IL (Intermediate Language) to run on their VM; REBOL is purely interpreted. RT has mentioned in the past that it would be possible to create a compiler for a subset of REBOL (or maybe the whole language, not sure), but you would lose the dynamic aspect of REBOL. I think I'd rather have a native code compiler myself, and a good infrastructure for building REBOL apps that can talk to each other, and apps built in other languages. -- Gregg
