[REBOL] Re: General REBOL questions

From: kemp:extelligence at: 16-Jun-2002 10:59

Great questions, I've been wondering these myself. Here's a few more: 1. What's the execution model for Rebol? It seems to combine the best of my favorite HLL (Smalltalk) and LLL (FORTH), and I'm wondering if it's basically stack-based as in FORTH? Any docs on this? Any docs on in-memory structures, esp 'image ? 2. Is it purely interpreted, or runtime-compiled (Q1 above may answer this if FORTH is indeed the answer :) 3. To protect commercial applications, can Rebol scripts be precompiled or otherwise obfuscated? 4. Is there/could there be a 'Rebol Web Start' (I'm sure that true 'Rebols' would prefer 'Rebol NET Start' here!) to ease the initial deployment of web applications? 5. Any thoughts of Rebol's use in K-12 education? From language, ease of use, and deployment? Thanks, Kemp
