From what I have seen of Perl, Perl DOES use dialecting, it just hasn't
been touted like dialecting in REBOL has. Perl is NOT READABLE, that seems
to be its biggest characteristic.
Why would you do a dialect? What is the point? A dialect is really
just a library, with a little different format for accessing the functions.
The reason for changing the way you access them is to make it REABABLE, that
would go directly against all perl rules. ;-) If someone wanted to they
could create dialects, in perl, that would allow you to write programs, in
Perl, in a readable fashion. ;-0
Enjoy, my 2¢!
PS Just enjoy no pun intended.
