[REBOL] Re: understanding rebol

Yes I would like to see this and the ref doc tool rescuscitated.
the ref-doc.r is my single most usefull rebol self-help tool. It is out of date, but
man its usefull. it would be fun to merge both ideas by creating a base viewer and using
m-d-p files as catalogues which can be loaded/edited.
I think this is already the case, but just in case... for sure, some updating would need
to be done.
I am starting work on STEEL|forge this week. Maybe I could tackle this documentation
issue as a workable prototype to try out the ideas I have for forge. Instead of a dummy
application, I might end-up with something which actually helps out, on its own too!
Something that is one script, loads catalogues, saves local appended versions. With
some collaboration from rebol.org, we could include a submit button where we could all
send our usefull tidbits and load them, a la ref-doc.
This would be really effective with stuff from the list. Simple and effective, ALL user
I know this has been taunted by many of us and started at least in part too, but I am
now at a point, where I can actually put time on end-user applications, through forge.
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
