[REBOL] Re: REBOL compiler?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 29-Jul-2002 10:02

Hi Val, << Does anybody know if there is a compiler for rebol available? Yes I know, the fact that it uses an interpreter makes it more easily portable etc., but what if you like to give somebody a useful rebol application and the person has no rebol interpreter installed on her/his computer (many people will be overtaxed, just when interpreter) ?>> There is no compiler, and likely won't be (at least not a complete one). REBOL is very dynamic and Carl has stated that some issues might be tough to solve (like dynamically creating code segments on some platforms). In any case, you can bind your script to the interpreter with their encap tool, but you have to buy that. That gives you a single EXE deployment mechanism. --Gregg
