PLs each have their own strengths and weakneses, and one of rebol's strengths is the variety of datatypes and how they can be applied, one of newlisps strengths is the involvement of the developer IMHO

of course there is and it appeals to me more than view (I never have used view) My needs are to a great degree based on the fact that I own and operate a small business with two partners. What I do has to in some degree mesh with my partners and I have a business plan that takes that into account. My choices come down to the mixture of the pragmattic, the contractual and the aesthetic and should they differ from yours, they don't make mine better than yours or vice versa, just different. My needs and my opinions should they differ from someone else here are because my needs and my opions are different, not to be construed to be better. However: I have always got the impression that RT promises more than it delivers and sometimes I get the feeling that someone has come down from a mountain with some golden tablets, dropped them at our feet for all do decipher and them gone back into the clouds. Newlisp *seems* more democratic to me. IMHO That's all I have to say on this subject. tim
