[REBOL] Re: Rebol > Lisp

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 11-Feb-2003 22:11

Hi Terry, TB> How difficult would it be to build an interpreter that converted Rebol code TB> to say Lisp (or any other language for that matter?) TB> Wouldn't that solve alot of problems? Speed, compiler, GUI etc etc. Certainly doable for a defined subset of things you could write with REBOL - provided that subset can map to capabilities available in the target language. As a matter of fact, that's one of the areas where I think dialects will be quite useful. Now, to say generally that you want to be able to convert *any* REBOL program into any other particular language...that's going to be a darn lot of work. -- Gregg
