Ah, yes, I agree entirely. Just like my bar-chart script. (: There's
the Catch 22 of being told "The script library is one of the best
ways to learn REBOL" when you can't understand a script until you
have a reasonable understanding of REBOL to begin with...
As to non-commented scripts. Well, I find code easier to write than
describe, which is quite common I think.
The "HowTo"s on RT's website are well done though. It's just there's
not enough of them, let alone ones for View and VID.
