well.... [...snip...] That's very cool. I agree with about the great potential for Flash + REBOL. But that must be Flash 5.x The Good news is Macromedia recently released the Flash 5 SWF spec to accelerate deevlopment of 3rd party devices and software. How well do you understand the SWF format? Have you looked into MING ? <quote> Ming is a c library for generating SWF ("Flash") format movies, plus a set of wrappers for using the library from c++ and popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, and Ruby. There is not yet a REBOL interface. </quote> A direct REBOL-SWF dialect is a wonderful way to go :-) But maybe can learn from Ming, even if bypassing it. There are many interesting uses for Flash -> as an installation or distribution medium for REBOL on any platfroms which support Flash. When running a standalone executable, [and with 3rd Party extensions], you have a very rich interface which is easy to design adn use. Shockwave can do even more [Flash + 3D + video + ??]. This could include the installation of REBOL/Core and REBOl/View, REBOL scripts like the FLASH dialect as you propose, or simply scripts using it and more. => *Yes Please keep me posted of any work you do creating REBOL-SWF dialect. thanks ./Jason
