[REBOL] Re: Rebol programs

From: riusa:email:it at: 22-Mar-2002 8:56

If I understood well, Vanilla was built with CGI in Rebol. But Rebol is not only a CGI language, but has much power in network protocol management, GUI system, etc... CGI can be built with a lot of languages (I write in Python, which is a very good language for CGI programs...) but I think the power of Rebol was in a very small client program that someone can download (small like an HTML file, like a Macromedia Flash file), has a good GUI system (always very few bytes!), I can create client programs which directly use HTTP, FTP, TCP/IP, etc... with very few lines of program. Further more, Rebol interpreter (when it will become even a plug-in? Like a Macromedia Flash player?!) is very small (think about Python (big!), think about Java runtime machine (big!)). -- Prendi GRATIS l'email universale che... risparmia: Sponsor: VolaSMS, il software pi=F9 completo per inviare e ricevere SMS dal tuo PC Clicca qui:
