Actually, I have not seen a single thing in any other language I know that is not in REBOL. ;-) However, I don't know any other language that has: dialecting; based on a single concept (values); 100% reflexivity; code = data; and so on... j> grammar) you want and for serious parsing I wouldn't j> bet on Rebol's parse BNF. There is a lot more than j> that I don't think so. ;-) I HAVE used other language, and they usually require me working much more time to do the same thing. Once I had to fiddle for three weeks to complete half of a project in Java; I could have finished it in REBOL in a day or two.
