Hi, all There have been a lot of debate on AltME how to make better documentation for REBOL. Some want beginners tutorials, others want advanced tutorials and some want full books. Here's my take: I made a REBOL entry at Wikibooks to form a good book on REBOL programming. A Wikibook has the following advantages: - Anyone can edit it. That includes YOU. No registration is needed (but is a good idea for larger submissions). - Free hosting - High level of exposure to REBOL It might be best to do this first at an entry level. I don't have a big plan for it, but this could turn out to be a good thing to take advantage of as we are sorely lacking in certain areas for documentation. I made a primitive skeleton here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Programming:REBOL -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen

Very cool Henrik! It looks nicer than a lot of other Wiki things I've seen (I'm not a big Wiki fan generally). -- Gregg

Great work of exceptional quality. Text is sharp and useful. Illustrations are very informative and really help understanding the evaluation of REBOL expressions and flow of values between expressions. Your work is rapidly becoming the tutorial of choice to newcomers. I submitted 2 small modifications, one about the Console Help the other about the Console History. Please verify if it is acceptable to you as is or no. I simply added more precision to your history mechanism description and a couple of small examples about using the HELP command (?). Keep up the good work, Gerard

* Gerard Cote <[gerardcote--sympatico--ca]> [050906 03:36]: I must add my appreciation to that of Gerard's. Like Gerard, I just had to add something. In my case, I added to the literal series section, and Henrik, I would invite you (or anyone else) to amend or change my editing for readability as is this is the first time I've ever used a wiki. Keep up the good work! Let's make this a great place for newbies to come to. :-) And I'm a permanent newbie when it comes to rebol tim

That's perfectly fine. If there is an error, it will be corrected. One of the advantages of the Wiki is that you can be a crappy writer, but someone will eventually correct it. Please keep contributing... -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen
