Yesterday I posted from my webhosts email browser and it got a little carried away and sent several posts. The webhost is currently head scratching on the problem. My name is Tom Schaeper and I'm and language junkie. I love new languages because the paradigm of each one forces a new way of thinking about a problem. I am at heart a Basic programmer and my profession is as a programmer in PICK/Universe/Unidata databases. I chose that vocation because the enviroment encouraged creating applications as opposed to writing code, much like REBOL. Over the years I have dabbled in: Forth: wrote a pong style game on an Atari 800 C: Not really my style Snobol: Kinda fun once you get the syntax APL: Wonderfully compact language LISP: Very powerful, but pretty ugly Fortran: I prefer BASIC COBOL: Just say no : ) PL/I : see COBOL PASCAL: Fun, but a lot of work Perl: Created dynamic replicating web pages REBOL is just amazing. So much power in so little space! Reminds me of Forth with a readable syntax. If it had a good multidimensional database behind it, I think it would rule the world. Thanks for your patience with my ramblings. I enjoy all your posts and read every one. Take care, Tom Schaeper
