[REBOL] Re: Dialects and XML

From: petr::krenzelok::trz::cz at: 19-Nov-2000 14:43

Hi Andrew, In my opinion - ability to generate/read various file formats is very essential. Imagine some kind of e-commerce bot, putting your data into MSWord file, .pdf file, etc. I think the functionality is so essential, ti has to be also fast enough. That's the right place for REBOL components. Once we will get dynamic components, I have no problem buying /pdf /msoffice set of components for native generating, reading various file formats ... As for your XML<->Java<->pdf converter - it's good as instant solution, but hardly good enough ... We even don't have "professional" XML parser and I am not sure /Command will have one, although it was planned earlier by RT. -pekr-
