I am not sure Rebol is resource efficient. 500Kb size of executable doesn't mean Rebol is not unpacked or memory hungry. I remember some earlier View memory test and I am not sure we were not talking 25 MB memory usage with some scripts. It would be fine if someone could do some measurements for Core and View, but I am scarred of Rebol being "Mozilla" amongst scripting languages. We also loose in compiler arena, but I don't know how are/aren't other scripting environments compilable ... -pekr-
