[REBOL] Re: First attempt at Rebol - 16 hours later

From: greg:schofield:iinet:au at: 26-Sep-2007 18:53

Anton, I did not want you to think I am rude. I am still trying to get my head around Layout activation, I am missing something simple and obvious. I can display the GUI, but not make them work. I am very impressed with what you have done with parse in making my script tighter, quicker, and easier to read. Parse is looking like my new best friend, it has changed my ideas on how to handle things. While Blocks are a whole lot more than a variation of stem variables (arrays) that I first took them for. All I can say is I like REBOL more and more, but there are some things I really have to understand a lot better than I do presently (hopefully not too much becoming redundant by R3). For those that are old hands newby problems may seem stupid, but there is, I think, a problem with documentation that needs attention in the future. The example tutorials are fine as they stand, but a more conceptual explanation is needed, I am hoping I might help, once I know enough, in writing one. Most of all I am enjoying the REBOL experience, I only wish I could spend more time playing with this wonderful and ever so flexible language. Anton, again thanks for your help, you have boosted me along much further along in my understanding than I expected. This is a very friendly community, thanks for all your help. Greg Schofield Perth Australia PS is anyone working on a Text To Speech engine for REBOL? Some of the voices available are very high quality these days and I use acelerated Voice Synthesis to teach students to read fast and accurately. --- Message Received --- From: Anton Rolls <> To: Reply-To: Date: Mon, 24 Sep 2007 13:43:04 +1000
