I've read the recent 'losing the case' thread with
Personally, I've just come to the end of my honeymoon
I've been throwing to gether 5 line scripts that do
what pages of Java or VB do in 5 pages. I've stopped
saying 'Wow,' and I'm starting to ask 'How.'
The problem is that, given a blank piece of screen,
where do I begin when devising my own code to solve my
own problems. What is the starting point.
Different languages have their own starting points.
In VB I start with a blank form, dropping controls and
then writing the event handlers.
In Java I start with an object model. I identify my
objects with methods and properties and then start
composing the relative classes.
In Perl or Ruby I start with the input stream, usually

What is the starting point with Rebol? Given a
problem and an empty .r file how do I start growing my
problem? With a form to enter the data? With a set
of objects? With a set of functions? By defining a
There seem to be so many approaches, but no single
method affords itself?
I can see there are some guys here who really know
their Rebol - what approach do you take to a new Rebol
