[REBOL] Re: The big idea of Rebol

Hello Andrew,

Everything is an object (should be communicated purely by messages): Smalltalk. Although it is not a typed language, its interactive graphic environment (full GUI IDE, widget sets, browser - which allows in-place creating/editing classes, tracer) is impressive and has been around more than 20 years... Actually the origin of all GUIs IS Smalltalk... At resides a full-featured FREE Smalltalk; I was quite impressed. Dozens of so-called "morphs" (widgets) for complex GUI-building, 3D animation and virtual worlds; multimedia access, built-in email-client and WWW browser, pen support (YES it runs on iPAQ :-))) ) Wishing someday REBOL would be "armored" this way ... :-( -- Cheers, Geza mailto:[geza67--freestart--hu]
