[REBOL] Re: Interesting Tech Developments

From: gregg::pointillistic::com at: 16-Dec-2007 13:51

Hi Ed, EOC> Seems pretty simple to me-- it's very quick to get basic charts EOC> out of the API very quickly. EOC> Is there a friendlier alternative out there? :^) What I'm trying to say is that this is fairly human-hostile: cht=p3&chd=s:Uf9a&chs=250x100&chl=REBOL|Python|Perl|Ruby Even compared to very minor changes, like this: type=pie3D&data=simple:Uf9a&size=250x100&label=REBOL|Python|Perl|Ruby It's a charting API, so the "ch" part is redundant, no? Then, to keep things short, you only have one letter left to determine what facet you're referring to. At least they got the size format right though. :) I'm not going to fault them too much though. It's a cool service, and points out that there is a lot of value in the basic elements (compared to, say, a multi-megabyte, multi-thousand-dollar add-on package for VS.NET). -- Gregg
