[REBOL] Language shoot-out

From: koopmans:itr:ing:nl at: 7-Nov-2001 14:11

While I was at it in my discussion with Joel, I thought I'd do a religiously tainted language preference shoot-out ;-) 1) REBOL. Reflexive, cross-platform, relatively fast, compact. Made by an alltime hero (that's you Carl). 2) Objective Caml: Mathematically precise, fast , sophisticated, almost as fast as C, functional, lost of libs. 3) Erlang. A functioanl language that has distribution built-in. Rugby is modeled after the ! operator in Erlang. Also gives you a RDBMs, httpserver, etc. in the standard distro. 4) Glasgow Haskell. Like 2) but with the main developers at micro$oft these days. 5) Raw C/C++ . For allowing you to implement the rest of the languages/OS'es 6) Scheme. Like Rebol, but slower. MzScheme is nice though. 7) Ruby. If you really want to do OO use Ruby. Also access to its metasystem. --Maarten
