I agree with you on using multiple languages. my prefs - c++: for serious development - rebol: nice for cgis and productivity but the lack of docs, external libraries, closed source make it much less appealing - javascript: a must for complex web development - ruby: the hot thing!. libraries, lots of developers . - scheme: for the academic point of view I agree pdf-maker is one of the greatest (or the greatest) real world Rebol apps (sad that there are so few!). Is ml protocol really so nice ? ______________________________________________ LLama Gratis a cualquier PC del Mundo. Llamadas a fijos y móviles desde 1 céntimo por minuto.
