[REBOL] Re: Building scripts

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 16-Jan-2002 11:50

Hi Brett, << Directly including code is not for every system, but for many situations has very useful properties. Given that Rebol scripts are destined to fly over the net such a system would be quite useful. >> One of the most exciting things to me, about REBOL, is imagining the tools that are going to grow up around it to facilitate the construction of substantial systems. There are bound to be uses for a "package compiler" that does what you suggest (and what some existing REBOL tools do to at least some extent) but I can see many other possibilities as well for systems that are dynamic and extensible. Imagine a system that has everything extraneous stripped out of it but maintains stubs so that, in the event of failure, debugging support could be dynamically loaded. --Gregg
