[REBOL] Re: Style R flavour checker ;-)

From: rebol:optushome:au at: 9-Jan-2002 19:35

I've been sitting back holding off commenting, but can't hold off forever. If you really want to make it easier for maintenance programmers, all I can say is to repeat the Designer's Tip Sheet. Tip #7 Code in Style REBOL is a highly dynamic language that allows massive creative freedon in script's design. But, when it comes to the source format of your script, use the standard style (found in the REBOL User's Guide). Adhering to a standard style will make your script easier for you and others to read I see little point in using a style different to the style that is in used REBOL itself. For one thing the source function loses some of its utilty if you have to mentaly map from the standard formatting to your own style. If you have trouble reading the standard style, then maybe you haven't truly learnt to read REBOL yet. (or you might be carrying too much baggage from past languages.) Please stick to the standard guide as much as you can, at the very least please stick to it for posts to this list. When in Rome... etc Cheers, Allen K [close vent]
