[REBOL] Re: rebol cosiderations at ucsd cogsci department

From: norsepower:uswest at: 1-Nov-2000 8:35

I know exactly what you mean. I'm writing a REBOL search engine for a client and there was some concern in the office that I was using REBOL instead of one of the "accepted" languages. But then I showed my code to the person who was making the most noise. I said, "would you like me to put comments in there for you?" and he said, "No need. REBOL seems to be commented by its very nature." Very true. Since I use 'words which are relative to what I am asking them to do, I don't bother commenting my scripts much. Here's a sample: foreach help-file file-list [ file-contents: read help-file if find file-contents cgi-input/keyword [ append pages-with-keyword help-file parse file-contents [thru <TITLE> copy text to </TITLE> (append help- file-titles text)] ] ] -Ryan
