* just a little addon:
I think that revol/view is an example brought to us by Carl/RT to show what can
be done with a dialect in Rebol. Build your own /view is the suggestion..
Its not an exident that the Rebol/Base just popped up out of the blue, I think
the RT got just too many questions on enhancements on the /view and /core part.
Well if you have a /base version, then people can build there own /Etc..
This goes also for the /command and IOS version... those are for the highend
market, I cant effort them and im seriously thinking of starting a community
on the internet that builds a Free /command or /IOS version.
Still when we look at the TimeLine of Programming languages from 1954 upto now,
I think Rebol is (besides Tcl/tk and Pascal) the best Language that comes near
the normal behavior of Human thinking and expectations, still new programming
languages and dialects will follow, I sure do hope so!
Anyway, the RT should loosen a Little and give the community the chance to
improve Rebol and give Rebol-language a Chance to be IT! But this is not
happening the way i hoped they would do it. I undertsand that its a Money and
(C) issue from the side of the RT, but a language can only be a Language if
it Gets its honor...
I have a Lot of programmer around me and they all swear on C/C++, pitty it is,
i cant get them to work with rebol, And im wondering why?
Rebol is amost there...But they should explode within 1 year!! otherwise
it will just become 1 out of 10 other languages...that would be a pitty.
