[REBOL] Re: (no subject)

From: robbo1mark:aol at: 6-Jul-2001 13:19

JEFF, okay so maybe you did suggest it tongue in cheek, but I still want to do it. I don't want to win! ( if that's not your tongue in cheek humour again 8-) If you know me at all by now Iam not interested in personality battles or winning or anything Like that. What Iam interested in and DO try to achieve is trying to make things better if that's what in my opinion needs to be done or might be beneficial to be done. ZERO Indexing and all that nonsense doesn't suit everybody, fair enough I accept that. However wouldn't it be good to show REBOL strength and proving it to implement behaviour / functionality that might be against the original "design" aspirations. In one of my earliest introductions to REBOL Carl wrote that it was designed to evolve and that there were NO reserved or keywords, everything could be redefined if that was your need. Well this is my need, my desire, AND some (maybe minority) other peoples. It would be great if you could help. All Iam asking is you to guide me in the right direction as to how best implement / approach the task. I will DO all the donkey work & all the rest. I've no desire to be any kind of a victor, I just want to use the language I love which is REBOL and make it "better" (in my opinion) if I can. I think a zero-index-patch might be a useful thing of some utility & help to myself and others, that's all. This is something I would like to do! cheers Jeff, Mark Dickson In a message dated Fri, 6 Jul 2001 12:59:56 PM Eastern Daylight Time, Jeff Kreis <[jeff--rebol--net]> writes: <<

I have to remember to be very careful with my tongue and cheek around you, I suppose. This is just more of a useless bandwidth soak. I give up, Mark. You win. You are the victor.
