Hi Where can I find some online dialecting tutorial? Thanks in advance, Behrang

Hi Behrang, BS> Where can I find some online dialecting tutorial? Brett Handley has written a PARSE tutorial: though it may not be what you had in mind as a "dialecting" tutorial. The Core docs have good info on PARSE as well. One of the best sources is this list. The library has some nice examples posted, but there are PARSE gurus here that can answer specific questions, and sometimes provide solutions to specific problems. When you get ready to dig into some code, VID is a great example of what you can do--but it's not light reading. It's not that there's a lot of code, but it is very dense. As far as tutorials on dialect (domain specific language) design, you could use non-REBOL resources for that: Some other links I had to some related items seem to be dead :(, and the books I have relate to the implementation aspect, not the language design aspect. -- Gregg

Hi Behrang, You wrote:

Gregg already answered you before but I also remember some article appeared in the REBOL Zine some time ago. After some search from the REBOL.ORG (or REBOL .NET) for the initial link I found at least one tutorial written by Robert Muench, the author of REBOL DOC PRO. You'll fint it at the following link : May be you'll find more about this rich subject looking around from there. For example you'll find texts explaining about many real dialects like : - TUI (Terminal User Interface) as designed, coded and explained by Ingo Hohmann; - MAKE-DRAW a parser-based function enhancement to the DRAW dialect already available under View as designed, coded and explained by Cyphre. HTH ! Regards, Gerard

Hi all, As I see Gerard mentioned some older version of the MAKE-DRAW dialect. For those who are interested, today I hacked a demo using updated version of this 2D vector dialect parser.(needs probably faster machine because of complexity of used vector gfx) You can check it at: do enjoy it! regards, Cyphre

Very nice Cyphre! -- Gregg

Cyphre, elegant example of how draw can be "extended". Thanks for posting that. Regards, Ashley<
