[REBOL] Re: Dialect for Flash files

From: carl:rebol at: 18-Jun-2001 16:25

Yep, we all know about Squeak... It's been around for a while now. The guys who wrote it are old friends of mine from Apple computer. It's based on Smalltalk-80... and remains true to that design, thanks to a good team... now at Disney. However, Squeak has different objectives that REBOL. Squeak is meant to be an entire programming environment whereas REBOL is meant to create lightweight network applications. On my system here, Squeak takes about 30 seconds to start (REBOL/View takes about 2 seconds), and it's meant to be kept open the entire time. So, each language has its merits. Use the language that makes the most sense for what you want to do. There really are no "winners". Most languages continue to exist. Fortran and Cobol are still used today. -Carl At 6/19/01 12:13 AM +0200, you wrote:
