[REBOL] Where are the dialects?

From: brett::codeconscious::com at: 10-Jul-2001 18:38

One of the strengths of Rebol is the support for the creation of mini-languages, or more fundamentally the fact that a block is an unevaluated store of data that can be interpreted in different ways for different contexts. My frustration with myself is that I've not been able to capitalise on these qualities of the language as much as I should have (probably too much other coding experience constrains the mind). The thing is though, I haven't seen a lot of examples on the list either. Obviously those at RT are switched on to it (Vid, make-doc, Zork like game by Jeff). I'd be grateful if people could share any insights, breakthroughs, applications, whatever on this topic. I need help to get my mind onto the possibilities of Rebol rather than *just* using it as a programming language. :) Regards, Brett
