[REBOL] Re: Is Rebol code smaller?/Compiler!

From: ammon:rcslv at: 19-Nov-2002 14:06

Hi, I will answer this much concerning REBOL and compiling; First, Carl said that REBOL code can be written so that it is too dynamic to compile.(Or somthing to that effect) Second Carl also agrees that we need more performance out of REBOL. He has talked several times about a function that they are working on that will actually compile REBOL code. Now the examples he gave for a compiled function would be heavy duty number crunching such as intensive algorithims and bitmap processing. As far as the general 'run of the mill' code, I don't think you will be able to compile it, and I think that the performance increase would be minimal. The real trouble with performance is in things like /View. All in all, I believe that RT is working on a solution to your current problem. HTH Ammon
