[REBOL] C# creater wants to go where REBOL already is

From: chris::langreiter::com at: 14-Feb-2002 15:50

He is examining more declarative programming languages. (This was slightly embarrassingly for us - at the time we couldn't remember the name of the best best known of these, Mercury, which has been recommended to us very warmly, and for which Microsoft is helping develop a .NET back end. Not wanting to refer to that Australian one" we didn't solicit his opinion on Mercury itself.) You've got to get there without taking away the tools people have today. The problem with declarative languages is that they've been domain specific. The trick is finding a combination of declarative and imperative, and that's not impossible. Does that sound somewhat like REBOL (or Lisp, for that matter)?
