[REBOL] Need help for justification of using REBOL as dev language
From: coussement:c:itc:mil:be at: 10-Apr-2001 9:37
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,
