[REBOL] Re: The effect of learning Forth on my understanding of REBOL

From: moliad::gmail::com at: 23-Mar-2007 9:13

thanks for this thread Ged, Its my first real brush with FORTH, and you've just explained/confirmed what I was about to develop wrt antidote's (see other thread) stack handling. so its seems I am on the right path. I understood stacks a long time ago with my amiga... I had many stack overflows in some application and I had to come to grips with a btree algorythm which was just going in circles. The information required to program on amiga really forced many developpers to become quality developpers... you could not overlook linked-lists, semaphores, garbage collection (pools), resident applications, graphics, there where so many advanced concepts given directly to you in the api... its still something I miss somehow. everything was bare and accessible, real control. yet having everything plainly documented and properly designed, meant that if you followed the few simple rules... you could litteraly rewrite the OS from the inside out! -MAx On 3/23/07, Ged Byrne <> wrote:
