Isaac, I had a terrible time learning rebol at first. But I got a 'full-court' press in terms of support from folks on this list. Let them help you and follow their advice. Rebol 'plays' all right. I've built some very large websites with rebol and it has paid many of my bills. I have programmed or do program in: Cobol, Basic, Pascal, Assembler, dBaseIII, C,C++, Object Pascal, perl, python, tcl, expect, css, html, javascript, DOS commands, and linux shell script. (At least). Rebol is the most productive of all of those above.

I am currently working on a project in which I am literally coding in rebol and python at the same time. Python has much to recommend it, I wouldn't use it other wise, but I do less typing with rebol. Every language that I have programmed in has it's strength and weaknesses. The code to do a 'hello world' in python or perl or rebol is virtually the same. -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]>
