[REBOL] Re: Language shoot-out

From: lmecir:mbox:vol:cz at: 8-Nov-2001 21:51

Hi Jason and Rebols, once upon a time (long ago) there was a thread named "Encouraging functional programming". Is there somebody who has got that archived? (I confess that I lost that when I had to reinstall Windows here). Jason: << A year ago I was evangelizing Python to a respected programmer friend. His answer shocked me: "That's all very well, but why don't you switch to a functional languauge like ML?". He tried to explain about functional languages.. I didn't really get it but did a littel investigating. Now REBOL has me hooked and I am honestly not sure quite why :-) Please would you try to explain to me [multimedia designer geek] what functional means in the context of REBOL? thanks - Jason
