[REBOL] Rebol and kiddies
From: pavone:saunalahti:fi at: 7-Nov-2000 9:42
I am interested in bringing some simple programming environment for kids.
A cheap alternative would be to take Rebol/Core and substitute a subset of
reserved words by different ones and then possibly add something Logo -like
graphical interaction by Rebol/Wiew.
For youngest children a difficulty is programming in a foreign language
There have been variants of Logo translated to various languages (e.g.
Finnish) but these have not been migrated to more recent Windows versions.
There are several options:
a) reimplement Logo as it is
+ 'genre' exists (manuals etc. are ready)
b) translate a subset of Rebol as it is
- new 'genre' needed
+ Rebol suits to long-term experimentation
+ easier than a)
c) translate an existing Java environment
+ many available (soon)
Has anybody done something like this already? Suggestions, comments?
