About Doc-info, beyond all the doc you can find on Rebol site:
- All the Ladislav stuff on its site (but nothing on View).
- Allen's RebolForce site
- Brett's codeconscious site
For a more deep vision of View you should read
http://www.rebolforces.com/archive/view099users.html, it is obsolete (do not
trust every word) but it is also the best doc we have on View architecture.
For Vid you must absolutly read the source of Layout: print it and read
slowly, becouse Carl S. writes very condensed code. Then you can start to read
some complex style code.
To understand well Vid you should try to write some not trivial styles, but
only after the previous steps, else you can gain some results but not a true
understand of what is happening.
To explore objects/face use my anamonitor.r
To see a style code in the shell, use my dump-style.r
To see a complex face in the shell, use my dump-face.r
(They are all in the standard Rebol library)
