[REBOL] Perl is to stupid to understand this 1 liner.

From: doug:vos:eds at: 12-Dec-2001 16:24

I love the simplicity of rebol's interaction with humans. Many other scripting languages are so dumb, you have to get down to the dumb level to understand them... Example: try this at the prompt. - Test for leap year
>> 29-Feb-1999
** Syntax Error: Invalid date -- 29-Feb-1999 ** Near: (line 1) 29-Feb-1999 However there is a leap year in 2000, so rebol knows right away what you mean...
>> 29-Feb-2000
== 29-Feb-2000
>> Can perl do that?
== NO
