[REBOL] Re: One-Liners back in town!/Errr...

From: tim::johnsons-web::com at: 19-Nov-2002 18:43

Hey Guys: I hate to be the Grinch that stole XMas, but I don't consider this to be an attractive idea. (Linux (self-styled) gurus may just laugh at you and make comments like "I can do this from my bash shell") .. and I once fired a apprentice programmer for put too much "C" code into a 'for' loop... Here's an alternative: Find something in "public domain" that is somewhat widely known. Challenge yourself as a team to "clone it in rebol" and make it "better" "more readable" "easier to maintain". Here's an example: formail.pl. It's widely used. Widely exploited. Hard to read. Beat it with a stick... :-) -tim- * Graham Chiu <[gchiu--compkarori--co--nz]> [021119 17:31]:
