Rebol is my scripting language of choice. When it comes to making
a living programming, the best case scenario for me is when my
client doesn't care about the source, they just want results.
I set up the first semester of a high-school curiculum on programming
using rebol. Rebol was a perfect first choice, based on the requirements.
The second semester required tutelage in graphic user
interfaces. The target platforms are Windows, Macintosh and Linux.
I couldn't use rebol/view because I see no rebol/view available
for Macintosh. Python offers the TKInter tc interface which is portable
to Macintosh. Thus I used Python.
Ah for a perfect world.......
Now I am asked to bid on a contract with source required
in Cobol and Visual Basic.
Compromises, always compromises.
Frankly, I don't see a world in which one programming language
will do it all.
