[REBOL] FAQ at REBOL Republic
From: ryan:christiansen:intellisol at: 12-Apr-2001 16:23
The REBOL FAQ at Rebol Republic has begun. What I will do is work backwards
from today on the rebol-list threads at eScribe to put together the FAQ. If
anyone wants to volunteer to help with this HUGE effort, it would be
greatly appreciated. See the FAQ at
The rebolrepublic.org domain should work within 48 hours.
Why am I doing this?
1. I want to see REBOL not only flourish, but survive. Unfortunately, it is
a closed-source language and if REBOL Technologies dies, so will the
language (I assume.) For those of you who know me from the BeOS community,
you know I am willing to put a lot of free time into something I believe
in. Unfortunately, the BeOS is dying and, being a closed-source technology,
as well, the BeOS can never be revived by the people who love and use it.
The BeOS is only slightly more than abandonware. I appreciate
wholeheartedly the fact REBOL Technologies has continued to update /Core
and /View for the BeOS, including for PowerPC. Let's hope we never see
REBOL disappear due to economic pressures and the fact it is closed source
2. I want to learn more about REBOL. I'm absolutely not the best REBOLer on
this list, but I will learn more by doing this.
