[REBOL] Re: Limited Core Features

From: gregg:pointillistic at: 9-Jan-2008 15:14

Hi Kaveh, KS> I have just introduced to REBOL; so I am going to see through it! Welcome! KS> 1 - But at the starting point I have seen some annoying signs that I have KS> read in the user manual: KS> Some part of core features are not free; some important parts like ability KS> to write native extensions! KS> I think I can not tolerate limited core features in long run. I prefer the KS> dialects be closed and commercial; not some core features. That's just the way it is. REBOL 3 has just been released in alpha form, and it will open up much more of the system for extension and such, but there will still be a closed kernel. At this time, there are no plans to make REBOL entirely Open Source, and the extension model is not solidified yet. What exactly do you need native extensions for? KS> 2 - What is this AltME? Where is your REBOL world? (Is it somewhere in WoW? KS> ;) ) If you decide to continue with REBOL, I can set up an account for you on the main REBOL world. -- Gregg
