[REBOL] Re: OLPC = The Children's Machine << Where Rebol belongs ???

From: rasmussen::bryan::gmail::com at: 17-Mar-2007 9:05

drawbacks of Rebol for OLPC: 1. unicode. I haven't worked with Rebol in years though I still follow the list in case there is anything that makes me want to take it back up, but I don't recall seeing that Rebol had added unicode support? Despite complaints Python actually has some pretty good libraries for Unicode. benefits of Rebol: 1. since it is a first class language all the language constructs could essentially be rewritten for major languages in various countries areas. Probably a lot of the children that will get this product will not speak English. Cheers, Bryan Rasmussen On 3/17/07, Graham Chiu <compkarori-gmail.com> wrote:
