That's the main point. You see a little bit of trick here, a nice hack there but no-one explains in full depth e.g. REBOL's main execution model (well, how about the purity and simplicity of the top level LISP loop, taught at respected programming courses as a model!). Why has droppped Carl the earlier stack model (borrowed from Scheme) and what are the insigths of this new one?

On samples: there are so many active participants here, why not to start a CRAN (Comprehensive REBOL Archive Network) in the taste of CPAN (Perl , grrrrrr!) ?

But what a level of anticipation comes shining on you when after thousands of trial-and-error code modifications (tiny things DO matter a lot in REBOL being such a compact language) you get your layout running! :-)

Is "write %system.dis mold system" not dirty enough ? ;-) -- Best regards, Geza mailto:[geza67--freestart--hu]
