[REBOL] Re: Need help for justification of using REBOL as dev language

From: coussement:c:itc:mil:be at: 11-Apr-2001 14:55

Hi list: I'm very grateful to all for the arguments provided as answer to my request. It will help me a lot !!! I particularly liked the analysis of Ryan and Brett. I have found many args in the J. K. Ousterhout's article too: About this article: a very interesting comparison is given by the figure 1 - level/typing - Has anybody any idea where to situate REBOL on the graph ? I assume it should be similar to Tcl/Perl ? Perhaps there are any folk at RT who could tell me what the range of instructions/statement for REBOL is ? Great too are the code comparison Tcl - Java - C++ . This example is easy to translate in REBOL and provides some difficult to refute arg about the compacity of REBOL. I just don't fully agree with the author's thought about OO programming, but that's not the point right here - perhaps another time ... Well I'll get to work and write my justification now :-( ... when duty calls ... Thanks again to all for the great job !!! CU, chr==
