[REBOL] Re: Text markup Dialect

From: massung:gma:il at: 19-Apr-2006 16:10

I haven't followed this thread in its entirety. However, why not just use REBOL as the data carrier? Is there any particular reason to use XML (which is an absolutely terrible data format, but I digress) or YAML? Why write an INI parser in REBOL instead of just loading up data that looks like this: bob: jane: jane-somewhere.else The only reason to not use REBOL would be if you are dealing with an existing format, or dealing with a format that needs to be shared across different programs (of which some are not REBOL).
