[ALLY] New REBOL/Core Manual

 [1/11] from: carl:rebol at: 2-Oct-2000 18:39


The new REBOL/Core 2.3 Manual is now available from www.REBOL.com. This is a substantially rewritten version of the manual -- it adds new chapters, new examples, and even a few diagrams to make the concepts of series more clear. This manual was a major job to write. It is well over 600 pages and the PDF is 4.5MB. I'd like to thank Scott Allen for his heroic effort in converting, editing, and formatting my files. Also, thanks also go to Erin, Barbara, Cindy, Danny, Dan, Dave, Jennifer, Jessica, Mitch, and Andrew for their input and proofreading help. This new manual is really just a starting point. There are several topics that I wanted to cover in more detail, but ran out of time. If you notice something missing, please let me know so they can included in the next revision. The HTML version of this manual will be coming soon. As it turns out, it's not as easy as you would think to convert Framemaker files to HTML. Watch the web site. Enjoy your reading, -Carl

The new manual looks *really* good from what I've seen so far. I checked out some of the diagrams you mentioned. They should make understanding series much easier for new Rebols. Anyway, just wanted to take the time to say thank you and give you a pat on the back. Good job! I'm now going through the Parsing section... :) Keith

Try converting the files to MS Word 97 first and then save as HTML from Word. You will get messy looking HTML, but it may look OK. -Ryan

Is there any chance that this manual will be published in paper form? If so I'm ready to buy it. If you need a good printer that can do very short runs at a good price let me know. I happened across a company that can do runs as low as 50 for quite a reasonable price. If this is something you'd like to look into let me know and I'll send you the information. --- There are just 87 days till the beginning of the 21st century and the next millennium!

Yes, we're looking into this and have found a printer that will do the job for a pretty low price. We'll keep the margin low as well and get it offered in the very near future. Dan At 09:29 PM 10/5/00 -0400, you wrote:

Cool - paper is good. I've the little "REBOL Core Guides" and it's often the first place I look when trying to remember the name of a native word or some such. And how soon after View leaves Beta is the View/VID Guide to appear? Same day? Same week? ...? (; On 07-Oct-00, [dan--rebol--com] wrote:

Aha. Yes, I see it now, under the News section but not under the documentation section. -- Graham Chiu
