[REBOL] Re: lost the case ...

From: nitsch-lists:netcologne at: 5-Nov-2003 16:15

I don't worry about rebol. But i worry a bit about us. Eventually we are outgrown it? The "simple for simple stuff, then the other features", this simple may be to easy for us? I like Carls recent style in the cookbook. Seems he has some fun with "rebol for simple things" again. Regarding cookbook: there are some examples which are quite usable to draw peoples to rebol. simply try to do that in other languages, and they would drop them. But rebols area is web-upload-scripts and searching IMHO. I agree the editor (area) is very weak in rebol. Not for real text-editing. not without emacs, vim, some others and word inbuild. (fast, rich-text, and everyones keybindings). the limit is the inbuild desktop-editor. usable for quick changes, for heavy tasks switch. field/area are good to show and enter stuff, its very repid to set up and use. Seeing such c#-examples i think "Uh, writing that much" since rebol. Instead of writing a real editor, i would like better connection to external editor. I can call my running emacs with file and line-number, and call rebol-scripts from there. could work for example as a file-requester in rebol, or calling text-processing scripts. -Volker Am Dienstag, 4.
