[REBOL] Re: Rebol on IPAQ ?

From: berniegs:prodigy at: 13-Feb-2005 10:37

Hi, I concur. I don't think there's much competition in this space for a lightweight development tool on the PocketPC. There's JScript, and VBScript (gag) built in, and not much else. The pros use Visual Studio .Net (double gag), but that's certainly not lightweight. Unlike the Palm OS, the Windows/Mobile OS has no memory model problems, and CPU speed is quite good. The Rebol/Core release for the PPC seems to be way down-level, so there's little portability left here, and it isn't terribly useful without the /View component. The Pocket PC is an extremely capable and versatile device, and it would be even more so with the availability of a good portable development tool. I think Rebol/View for the PPC would be a real winner. Regards, Bernie Schneider The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.
