Can anyone suggest a good primer on Rebol for experienced programmers? I've been a professional programmer/software engineer for thirty plus years and have worked in many languages. Both Rebol, The Official Guide, and Rebol For Dummies are far too wordy and written as introductory text on programming. From what I've been able to learn about Rebol to date, it appears that a 50 to 100 page primer should be plenty; especially if you are familiar with Lisp and Forth. Thanks in advance for your help.

The REBOL core manual, http://www.rebol.com/docs/core23/rebolcore.html (also in PDF or available paperpack), is a tad more than 100 pages but it gets pretty much to the point for those who just want "the manual". Regards, Ashley

The REBOL core manual is good and sets things out plainly, though I found I needed to read it and re-read it to get the concepts into my head. I've written a short article which focusses on a few fundamental concepts I found most different to other languages I programmed with in the past. Maybe it will be of use: http://www.codeconscious.com/rebol/articles/rebol-concepts.html Cheers, Brett.
