[REBOL] Re: Object viewer

> ...Features features.. bloat bloat... ;-)
Of course I knew that this was said in jest, but this is one of the things I really love about REBOL: it is very easy to add features. I am currently writing automation routines for my wife's new website so that she can list and maintain items on her own (the unstated subtext is so that *I* don't have to do it manually). She tries out a routine, and if she doesn't like the way I've implemented it or wants additonal features, it is so darn easy! After I finish the website stuff (and doing taxes :-( ), I am going to rewrite all her automated routines for listing items on eBay. They are currently written in dos batch, VBScript, and Tcl. They've been difficult to maintain, possibly because they are not so Internet friendly. I like Tcl and Tk, but I am already more productive in REBOL /Core and /View after a couple weeks, than I was in Tcl/Tk after a couple of months. Which really brings me to what I was droning on about in my last message. I am unclear about whether /View will be its own "product" or is it the test-bed for a "larger" system? Have I overlooked some webpage that explains this? Oh, I just realized that I'm getting way off the "topic" for this thread. I've already enjoyed using your version of the object viewer. Thanks again. --Scott
