I think it would be truly wonderful to have a book which does a complete breakdown of each of the 50 languages that Carl studied during his (legendary?) 20 year journey to REBOL. The strengths and weaknesses of each would be presented as well as the reasons for including or excluding each feature of the language in REBOL. Does a list of the 50 pre-REBOL languages exist somewhere? -Karl
