[REBOL] Re: SketchUp -> seeking Ruby overview in Rebolese

From: chrismorency:videotron:ca at: 8-Aug-2004 19:34

Hi, Ruby has been mainly popular in Japan. It owes a lot to SmallTalk... But I much prefer the later. In fact, Smalltalk and Rebol are my favorite languages. Both language syntax can be learned by "ordinary" people really fast. Both are powerful learning language. I've read that Carl wrote a lot of language interpreter/compiler prior to writing Rebol and I can feel Smalltalk's influence. Rebol could benefit from a IDE like Smalltalk has since the 60's... An IDE that is much better than anything currently used by today standard including Eclipse. Eclipse is a mere shadow of a Smalltalk IDE. Why is that both languages are not commercially successful ?
