[REBOL] Re: On mutability and sameness

From: robbo1mark:aol at: 19-Jun-2001 10:43

Joel, thanks for your clarifications, I think we are in basic agreement, sometimes REBOL examples can suffice, other times you need to drop down a language to see why REBOL might behave as it does.

C may be okay for giving examples, but it is certainly not the only way to think about computing, IMHO. < end snip > Of course not Joel, everybody knows REAL PROGRAMMERS can write FORTRAN in "ANY" language. 8-) Further it is my belief that REBOL or a REBOL like language could be implemented in a LOT of languages other than ANSI C. For instance FREEBELL in JAVA so why not Delphi, Ada, C++, C#, Tao/Amiga assembly etc. etc. This might effect ease of platform portability and full feature set though! Your opinions are valued! well by me anyway! cheers, Mark Dickson
