[REBOL] Rebol Tech, please answer. Two questions. Re:(4)

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 12-Sep-2000 8:59

Why is semicolon (;) the REBOL comment character? *shrug* Because it's an easy key to type (find) on a keyboard? Why are square brackets ([]) used for REBOL blocks? [ ] IMO are more readable than ( ) (because they are bolder) or { } (because the graphics are simpler). What do the above reasons have in common? NO SHIFT KEY! WOOHOO! This was extremely noticeable after I started programming in Perl. - Michael Jelinek
