I too would like to a see a document that describes the high level and connects it to assembly. The equivalent of Dr. Ralph's "The Implementation of the Icon Programming Language" would be a wondrous thing. To be honest, I've always felt like arcanesentiment. Z-80 Assembler was how I learned programming. My warm fuzzy comes from thinking in terms of addresses, registers and machine instructions. Without coming to grips at that level, I end up feeling lost. I love REBOL enough to ignore that twinge most of the time, but then feel that efforts to help out with the documentation and advocacy can only end up as epic fail due to the disconnect. And lately, I can't seem to shake an effort sapping sense of unworthiness in that regard. But all worthy things come with an emotional price and hope springs eternal. So ... Go rebols Go! Cheers Brian
