Another odd little scripting language. I was particularly amused at the so called "FAQ" and this description:
It's a messaging language ` 'rebel' not 'ree-ball' ` code is data and data is code ` CGI? Yes ` 40+ platforms ` only 250K-500K ` console or GUI ` Yes, just a single file ` commercial versions = same core + ODBC, SSL, and more - shallow learning curve, amazing depth ` keep IT simple ` if you liked "The Matrix"..
If code is data and data is code, you can keep it, thanks.
Then there was:
If you do text processing, it's great for that too; no reg-ex's, but it has something better (the PARSE function)
No regexes?? Here's a page on PARSE: https://www.rebol.com/docs/words/wparse.html. That's better than regexes??? I don't think so, sorry..
Got something to add? Send me email.
