[REBOL] Re: [Plugin] is cool

From: paulporter:buffalotalks at: 21-Apr-2004 11:51

As far as application development goes I'm given pretty much free rain. The only edict set in stone is that anything that is developed must be cross platform complient; Windows-to-Linux, Linux-to-Windows. Most of my work is PHP/MySQL so that edict doesn't effect me to any great extent. I initially was looking at Rebol as a messaging tool (to me it appears to be much more friendly, in that capacity, then Java). As I read about and play with Rebol I am seeing some real possibilities for it in other areas as well. Once I have gotten to where I am comfortable working in it and have a better understanding of it's use and capabilities I can send it up for approval and add Rebol to my toolbox. As for the plug-in it has no chance in our setting on two counts; One we don't use IE and two the NS plug-in doesn't exist. I think that having the plup-in available for Mozilla/FireFox would be a plus in my bid for getting Rebol approved for use; but I feel pretty confident that I will have little trouble getting approval any way, if I can show that I am able to use it to develop those apps that we require. Personally I find myself amazed at the compactness & speed of Rebol. I don't know the language itself well enough to appreciate it's ease of use, but I expect to be totally blown away by that aspect as well. I do appreciate your input. Paul -- Linux User Number: 348867
