[REBOL] Re: New Amiga support? Re:

Hello [holger--rebol--com]! On 03-Ago-00, you wrote: h> The first experimental release of REBOL/Core for Tao h> Elate/intent VP is now available for download.

The console hangs when pressing the "Home" key (and other special keys too I assume), I'll check later if this is related to REBOL only. Some statistics: the VP code for REBOL is about 240k (the linux version is a bit smaller, about 230k); the translation to native code takes 0.63 seconds and produces a binary of about 350k (I don't recall the exact size...). It is a bit slower than the linux version: a script I wrote (Quine-McCluskey reduction algorithm, fed with 128 minterms) takes 129 s on Elate and 104 s on linux. So the translator seems to be fast but not really accurate. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[giesse--writeme--com]> - Amigan - REBOL programmer Amiga Group Italia sez. L'Aquila --
