Thanks for sharing those thoughts, Joel. Very true stuff.
I'm a newbie to Rebol myself, trying to grasp its methods and
functions, and I - as many others - have some trouble letting go
of a lot of functional and data-centric methodology in order to
get a better understanding of the ways of Rebol and focusing
on the result instead of the task.
I'm pressed in the fact that I *understand* that Rebol is the Right
Choice(TM) for many problems I try to solve, yet find myself
held back by my maybe simple mind and ability to think a
couple of steps ahead. Rebol offers me a lot I need and want,
but I can't seem to get into the bare facts of how to do things
I find the lack of a coding standard both a weakness and a great;
it makes it harder for *others* to understand your code, but it
really makes it easier for *you* to understand your own code.
Now, a concrete question to round off with; does anybody
know of any really good tutorials (or somesuch)? I find the
original examples from the rebol.com site fair enough, but they
are so simple that they are of little practical value. Does there
exsist more advanced examples, books and / or tutorials?
