I totally agree with that. Learning a new dialect
(syntax) is not harder than learning a new API, at
least for experienced programmers who have worked at
least with 3+ languages in real world scenarios.
Having worked with Java and C++ alot I didn't feel any
difficulties in learning Jython, (and REBOL of course
According to the messages sent to the list I learned
that REBOL is not OO. But it doesn't look to be
procedural or something else too. Isn't it an instance
of a new yet to be named paradigm??
