[REBOL] Need help for justification of using REBOL as dev language

From: coussement:c:itc:mil:be at: 10-Apr-2001 9:37

Hi list: As already mentioned on this list, the whole psychotechnical assessment system of the Belgian Armed Forces is running REBOL... Well, I think personally it was the best choice I ever made as project manager: REBOL is stable, ergonomical, easy to learn and use, has lot of possibilities for being used to access ODBC and external libs, ... and I feel good when I use it ! But the choice of REBOL was a personal choice, not an Armed Forces standard: it was in first instances justified by the fact the project had to be operational in less than a few month... So I had no time for prospection. Now the project is going further and the code is getting stable, I feel the time is coming some high-ranked folks will ask me to justify my choices, and try to impose some standards like Java of PowerBuilder ;-( Well here is my request: there are lots of people - and gurus - on this list, who are coming from different developing universes - like C, Lisp, Java ... - and have discover the power of REBOL ... Please help me find straight and technical args I could use to justify the use of REBOL. Even language comparison tables should be useful ! Perhaps we could create together a new standard for the Belgian Armed Forces ;-)) Thanks in advance, chr==
