[REBOL] Re: One-Liners back in town!

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 24-Nov-2002 11:46

Gerard et al, I love all the clever things people are coming up with but I can also see where some kind of line will have to be drawn. With REBOL, you could probably do almost anything on one line, and we could write a script that turns things into one liners automatically if we were so inclined. If we do end up with a special library category for this kind of thing, maybe there is more than one way to look at it. There is great value in one-liners that show how to upload a file via FTP for example. Very handy that. The more we cram in, though, the more we get into the "obfuscated REBOL" world where fun is more important than utility. For me, I'd rather nto eliminate all unneccessary whitespace just to try and fit things in 80 characters, but if there's an obfuscated REBOL category, then that's the place to do it. :) -- Gregg
