[REBOL] Re: Comments about make-doc-pro?

From: dness:home at: 13-Aug-2001 21:34

Continuing comments on easy-vid / make-doc-pro ... Has anyone made a version of easy-vid that interfaces `code' segments to languages other than REBOL? Let me put the question in context. Those of us who do some of our work in J make use of J's `tutorial' capability to write instructive material about the J language, and problem solving in J. J's tutorials are ok, but IMO, REBOL's clearly look leagues better. and are much more managable and effective. I would like to be able to write J tutorials that would allow me to execute J fragments in the same way that easy-vid allows me to execute REBOL code fragments. I understand, of course, that it would be `my job' to figure out how to get REBOL to `talk to J" in an appropriate fashion. Given that J's own IDE `talks to J' in a straightforward way, this should, I think be doable. Is this a silly thing to attempt? Or can some one give me a pointer to get me started down the appropriate path... I note, in passing, that REBOL might also make a wonderful IDE for `K', which currently pretty much uses EMacs console mode on the input side and IE (HTML) on the output side, but I go into `overload' when I start to think about that prospect.
