Assuming you can get at the stream of digital sound coming in and the computer's fast enough and has enough memory, speech recognition should be possible with most languages that can get at the bits in bytes. The "computer's fast enough" condition would be the biggie with REBOL though. I doubt it's the ideal language for the job.

Once again, if you can get the digital data from the CD then REBOL should be able to do it, and this time speed wouldn't be a factor, as it wouldn't matter (from a technical point of view) if it took a day or two to copy stuff from the CD - you'd still be able to get a perfect copy. Right - I note on Escribe that Andrew Martin's replied to this too, (not in my mailbox yet), so I wonder whether he says much the same thing... Hmmm. He says we'll have to wait 10 years for PCs to get up to speed to allow REBOL to do it. ;-) And for both speech recognition and ripping. Depends what you mean by ripping I guess... -- Carl Read
