[REBOL] Re: Rebol mode for Emacs

From: whip:cs:unm at: 16-Dec-2000 13:32

Howdy, Marcus: YOU ROCK!! Way to go! This rebol.el is awesome! I hacked on that original for a day or more trying to figure out the nesting close braces problem with scant to show for it. I sort of had something that was sort of working but mostly more broken than when I started.. arg! Also, I notice you seem to have solved the problem with the {} braced strings munging the whole parsing state. Wow-- and semi colons do the right syntax coloring and everything! Great job great job great job!! :-) By the way, Your README file has a sentence that just drops off about the original creator of the mode, Joe Marshal, told you something or another? Also, by the way, if you're interested, a while ago I asked one of my professors who's a big emac'er for help on the rebol mode and he told me he wasn't so good with elisp, but he gave me this referal: "Olin Shivers <[shivers--lcs--mit--edu]>, who is world famous for his ability to hack his deep experience with, knowledge of, and fondness for, elisp." I never ended up contacted the fellow-- My excuse being this crazy whirlwind of stuff to deal with that keeps me constantly context switching, but thought you might be interested... I know Sterling will be just as happy too. Now Holger's a total VI guy, so he'll just sneer at our delight... ha ha, but some things can't be helped. ;) Totally grateful!! (-: -jeff
