[REBOL] Re: Slashdot REBOL mention

From: ammonjohnson:yah:oo at: 29-Oct-2001 17:39

Hi, Yes, oh yes! You see Perl IS A DIALECT (of C). ;-) (I just noticed two reasons for dialecting, the other being to MINIMIZE code) If you do enough with Perl you will find that you soon speak (code) in a dialect no one else can speak (code) thereby it has gained its fame as UNREADABLE code. ;-) The difference is that REBOL is touted for READABLE code, so its developers (the purists) emphasize READABLE code. Whereas Perl is touted for "quick code" something that never was nor ever will be meant to use again, but to throw away, & rewright when you move to another company, or when you change developers. So its developers tout its quickness to code (or in other words less typing). Enjoy!! Ammon
