When I started to learn rebol, I had been working for 11 years
almost exclusively with C/C++ and a little assembler coding.
I was told more than once - on this list - to stop "thinking in
C". It was good advice. I was more fortunate than you in that
I started with a simpler topic: loop iteration and FTP - and FTP
in rebol is ridiculously simple. You have actually begun with
the most difficult (and powerful) feature of rebol - symbolic
I've noted that the rebol community doesn't often refer to
rebol as having "symbolic programming" features - such as
lisp,, but I would bet that someone coming from lisp would
make that note.
When you get back to rebol - and I hope that will be soon - you
might find that conceptual seeds have been planted and that
they might now be sprouting.
