[REBOL] Re: REBOL Newbie tries to convert C source to REBOL (long posting) Part

I'm pretty sure I've seen someone mention before here that they were
doing some work against this type of GIS file. Anyone remember who?

The How-To docs section on REBOL.com has some good stuff in it.
(http://www.rebol.com/how-to/feel.html) EasyVID and (Brett's?)
VIDNotes are other good resources.

I did a little test mod of the plain REBOL editor that emulates
Intellisense, but it's been collecting dust for a while. It was a very
crude demonstration of the concept, but it would show a list of elements
in an object, or the interface for a function (as a tooltip in the
latter case). As Andrew said, making it context aware is the tricky
part. Probably doable, but would take a bit of work.
