[REBOL] Re: cheyenne and RSP

From: compkarori:gmai:l at: 14-Jan-2007 6:00

There's a big difference between Javascript and RSP. RSP is like PHP and other languages that dynamically build pages. Javascript modifies an existing page in some functionality. So, they are complementary. You don't need to learn Javascript in order to leverage RSP. You could conceivably use RSP to generate Javascript for your web pages.
