Good question! Some answers could be: player has not a true console (I cannot directly type commands). Rebol interactive console is a powerful instrument to create/debug programs. I could have a Rebol version where I can create text-based software, but I cannot directly use it to interact with Rebol (typeing Rebol command, or writing Rebol scripts in console). Another feature that could be eliminated is executing Rebol commands using Rebol command-line (when you exec Rebol from your preferred shell). Think for a moment to the difference from a Explorer browser and a full featured HTML editor like Dreamweaver: Explorer can exec the HTML/Javascript code, but it doesn't give you any instrument to create HTML code. If you buy Dreamwever (or a similar product, like Hotdog, etc...) you have a good instrument to create HTML & co. Rebol could work with the same target: Rebol player is the smallest instrument to play Rebol scripts (maybe, it could be even smaller than now): no console (console is available only to play text-based programs, not to let the programmer directly type code), no interactive help (> ? print); and Rebol "for developers" could be a package which contains a full-featured Rebol program, a good Rebol editor (syntax highlight, interactive help, direct execution, etc...), a full console help, a good debugger. What do you think about it? bye! --Alessandro-- -- Prendi GRATIS l'email universale che... risparmia: Sponsor: I costumi e i Boxer all=92ultima moda per l=92estate 2002 li trovi da, collegati e scegli il modello che pi=F9 ti piace!
