[REBOL] Standardize REBOL? Re:(2)

From: bobr:dprc at: 14-Sep-2000 12:54

I disagree. The language does not have to be "quite stable". The C language was not very stable at all when we started to standardize it. Same with C++. There were many conflicting implementations in both cases. I say this from having served on X3J11, the C standards committee, during my days as a compiler writer. I do agree that the process takes (to take a quote from the movie 6days7nites) a long, long, long long long ... long! long time. At 03:31 PM 9/14/00 +0300, [jhagman--infa--abo--fi] wrote:
