[REBOL] Re: 'launch and scripts running other scripts.

The macintosh version of rebol/view also insists on
creating FIVE copies of the executable the first
time it runs. It is very irritating, and I cannot
find any reason for doing that. If you try to delete
them, they are automatically re-created at the
The unix version has another ennoyance. When it
runs for the first time, it apparently wants to
rewrite the executable file. It is OK if you
have your own version of the program, but if you install
rebol in a well known directory (/bin or /usr/bin
for example) for a public usage, rebol stops
and complains about the rebol file being not
found or not writable.
RT says that rebol is very easy to install, just
copy and run, but I do not agree. There seems to
be a lot of unnecessary complicated things
going on in our back, and there is not explanation
of them anywhere.
It is a pity because rebol is really a great
language which I try to promote in my company,
but I need arguments to refute criticisms against
this strange behaviour.
