[REBOL] Re: Compatibility REBOL 2.x / REBOL 3.0 ?

From: moliad::gmail::com at: 11-Mar-2009 4:38

hi Jedi, as an example, I know for certain that just about 0% of my 10 years of rebol codebase is compatible with R3. not only the view stuff but even the core stuff too. if you consider elixir with its over 350kb of assembled (and already clean and compact) code.. this is not so trivial, but its the price to pay for improvements. currently, I'm not attempting ports, because R3 is still a bit to slippery for me to consider really use, and its still lacking a few things which are needed in most of my application development. in fact right now, R3 would give me no real added benefits in raw feature (a part from a boost in evaluation speed) since R2 is already competent, and any functionality issues have been already addressed for my needs. I just resurrected an old project of mine (which is going to be liquified within a week or two) and just running it within 2.7.6 is causing it to crash unexpectedly.. this is a common problem in all computer languages, unfortunately. -MAx On Wed, Mar 11, 2009 at 3:02 AM, Şemseddin Moldibi [ Bircom ] <> wrote:
