REBOL Language Specification :D

 [1/5] from: behrangsa:g:mail at: 5-Sep-2005 10:51


Hi Is there a REBOL Language Specification (like Java Language Specification) available? With all the BNF grammar and other kinds of information? Of course as REBOL is not meant to be implemented by different vendors this may not be so necessary but it would certainly help. - Behi -- Behrang Saeedzadeh http://www.jroller.com/page/behrangsa

This can be a good thing, for those who think that rebol is just a product , no ? Charles.

Are you sure that this is still true for any significant part of post-1.0 REBOL? I, for one, would be _very_ interested in a DS for REBOL :) -- Best regards, Andreas
