[REBOL] Re: language shoot-out :-)

From: carl:s:rebol at: 5-Nov-2002 16:45

That's interesting. In the past we've been invited to many such conferences. Give it another try, and explain a little more about the semantics of REBOL. Most casual reviewers don't understand the depth of the language. I think they brush it off when they see the little one line examples that do something like send a web page as email, and they don't look further. But, they should. I believe that there are several PHD theses that could be done on REBOL. For example, just one such topic might be the difference REBOL deep lexical level datatyping makes on expression optimization...this is quite noteworthy. It offers another dimension of implied expressions. Another PHD thesis would be the idea of dialecting with merged data and code. Several more. -Carl At 11:15 PM 11/5/02 +0100, you wrote:
