[REBOL] Re: CURL -- similar idea to REBOL?

From: dmurrill:mindspring at: 7-Aug-2001 14:51

Curl acts like Rebol, were as you can parce other languages and add/subtract code, and insert it back into the file. But this file can be seen in the browser. Just think, what can Perl do with sockets, javascript, CSS,DirectX, SMIL, and XML? Curl was first created in Perl. I played with it but it's overkill. You need to unpack a very large plug-in that takes close to an hour with 56ks, that does no more than window dress with W3C standard. (i.e. the stuff above*) browser languages. (SGML) through its own shell (like Rebol Shell). Rebol is better for know but can't be seen by browsbyer's on the net. All the stuff Rebols missing Curl can have now, it just depend on what language you throw at it. Do you know Java, Winsocks, javascript, Soap, C/C++,CSS,DirectX, SMIL, and XML? Than Curl can do about anything because its a shell with its own native language, pretty much like Rebol. (Curls' free though)
