[REBOL] Re: Parsing comment

From: gchiu:compkarori at: 26-Sep-2002 8:06

From all of this, I think Tim Peters does make a valid comment. Many newbies have joined the list and left, unable to come to grips with Rebol. I think part of the problem is due to the lack of documented scripts. Sure there are plenty of scripts now in the script library ( and I don't think they were that many when Tim (wink) was on the list which I think was over 2 years ago), but the scripts in general were not written to educate, but to perform some function. And who bothers to document their scripts with the intention that someone will learn something from them?? In an ideal world, Rebol scripts will be self documenting, but to the newbies ( and me ), this is not going to be the case. If the librarian project ever gets off the ground, perhaps this aspect could be addressed. Scripts could be rated on their instructive value. A way to vote perhaps? -- Graham Chiu
