you were trying to state. So I won't make any assumptions about what you
What I will do is state that my goal is to make powerful tools that are
written in a modular form such that multiple tools can share a common base
of source. That a single program can run on multiple platforms. That the
programs are small, easy to use, and always being improved, to meet demand
Rebol happens to provide this power. Perl, PHP, and Python (Java for that
matter) do not. I don't know how many people here have written 600K lines
of Java, but our company has. I have little interest in Java...ever again.
Currently we are pre-beta testing an app that was written on the PC in
Rebol. It is encapsulated for Linux and Windows (NT, 2000, 98, XP). So far
it has run on everything we have tested it on. Including about 10 different
flavours of Linux.
What Rebol has permitted us to do is not care what the flavour is, but just
Our final product is still a Rebol app. But only this group will know that.
Most people will not care, and that is great to me. We have a full
application that including the full Rebol program (with view) is less than
500K! It comes in the form of an EXE (on Windows) and what ever you like to
name an Exe on Mac, Linux, etc.
Eventually there will be easier ways to release the product in a compressed
and encrypted ".r" format as well. So we can put something out in the 20K
range, that matches the power of 2 and 8 meg apps.
Oh, did I mention the other goal is to SELL this project, for money, and
