[REBOL] Re: Commercial-quality REBOL programmers needed

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 16-Aug-2002 11:39

Hi Dick, << After all, Rebol is no different than Java, Tcl/Tk, Perl, and other well known languages. It is simply a language with certain powerful constructs. Without an overall application framework they are just languages. >> You may find, after spending more time with REBOL, that it is quite different than most languages out there. You can see features inspired by other languages (notably Forth, and the Lisp/Logo/Scheme family) but I think it's fairly unique in many ways. Using most languages, you build tools, libraries, and frameworks and then you end up thinking in terms of two different models or "universes of discourse". I have found, in my one year with REBOL, that as I build things, there seems to be much less of a distinction in how I think about using the core language and using my tools. I'm able to think more about what I'm trying to achieve and less about certain details. I hope you enjoy REBOL as much as I do! Have fun! --Gregg
