[REBOL] domain specific languages design info and REBOL DOCS

From: gerardcote::sympatico::ca at: 13-Jan-2004 21:56

Hi Jason, while I followed a link about Rob Mee related to the object above I found some resource pool at the ACM portal. The following link is your open door for more reading on the subject and many related ones ... A couple of the presented papers particularly attracted my attention but I will leave you select your own readings ... ================= Subject change ================= And while I think about it since you proposed me some help to start with Vanilla I think I will acceot your offer and use Vanilla as a starting point to share my thoughts about REBOL learning and the code snippets I will find and receive from contributors to use or create myself all along the way. I would not start anotherone for this work but complete the existing RIT site which started around 278 days ago!!! If ML members that want to comment what I and other contributors will deposit there in the run it could be interesting and useful to create some space to exchange as Petr and you suggested. I have yet to evaluate the different advantages of each offering from a practical point of view. A world under AltMe would do as well as a Web forum - REBOLTALK maybe (be it written in PHP or whatever - for me the main reason I use the tool is not to show REBOL power - this will come later when we'll have our completed REBOL DOC and learning toolkit) but In the short term I will probably opt for the second choice since it will offer a greater visibility for the rest of the world during the process. For me IOS also suffers the same visibility problem than AltMe here. Vanilla is less prone to this visibility issue since it produces Web output but I don't know if it will be as easy to follow the many threads that would eventually originate from this collective work since every snippet is separated from the others while reviewing them. The script library with its new add-ons for ML archives browsing is also very interesting and even the presentation Carl did of the recent ML list is very interesting in some way. But none of them permits us to directly send in any way some REAL-TIME msgs to the existing list - be it to annotate or add new material. And this is what is missing in this case. Will be back to work soon. For themoment I review some recent VID and View material submitted to the Library by Cybarite under the name VID-usage.r Don't miss it. This is an enhanced version of the original easy-vid.r written by Carl. My appreciation : it's an A Even if I found some small glitches I will send him back soon as a feedback I can ensure that the done work merits many congratulations. It was a long awaited item on my wish list. Many well kept secrets are revealed and well documented. Many contributors also shared some code and explanations to help Cybarite deliver this final collaborative masters-piece but the final merit come to Cybarite and I thank him very very much in my own name and in the name of all those readers that will read and reread it for some time before mastering all the aspects that VID and its numerous styles deliver for us...
