REBOL And E-mail Services

Street Talk: REBOL

"One of the best aspects of REBOL is that it is supported on over 35 platforms, with support for 50 or more platforms expected by the end of the year. One of those platforms, fortunately, is the AS/400...With the strength of REBOL as cross-platform support, REBOL scripts will run exactly the same way on the AS/400 as they do on any other platform, so you can start REBOL programming before the final release of the AS/400 version..." --Chuck Lundgren

REBOL is to Revolutionize the Internet

"Sassenrath predicts a great future, particularly with the application of wireless communication equipment. REBOL already performs well in areas which Microsoft might regard as dangerous to them. "Microsoft is continuously monitoring our site", says the REBOL chief. "Our development threatens the Empire and also Java."

REBOL Crowned 'Head of the Herd'

"Whether you're a seasoned JavaScript, VBScript and PERL programming guru, or just a neophyte wanting to get their feet wet, then perhaps you should take a look at REBOL...Being a programming tool, REBOL doesn't get rated, but if it did, it would be worth an entire herd!" --Tucows Programmer Resources

30-October-1999: Linux World

A REBOL IncursionIt's not a scripting language, not a programming language -- and not a new Amiga, either. Or is it?

"Don't be fooled by people who say that Carl Sassenrath's new project is "just a scripting language." In reality, the chief architect of the AmigaOS is after nothing less than your cell phone, your Java-enabled toaster, and your Linux box in his quest to make your operating system irrelevant in the new world of instant messaging." --Nora Mikes

Let the REBOLlion Begin

"We see three current hardware imperatives gathering IT talent: wireless networking, embedded computing (or appliances), and distributed (especially clustered) computing. REBOL has stories to tell about all three of these. It's particularly interesting to see how well REBOL is positioned to serve in networked appliances, especially wireless ones." --Cameron Laird and Katherine Soraiz

Scripting Language for the Next Century

"REBOL introduces the concept of a messaging language, which puts it in the same category with other natural languages like English. While scripting languages like Tcl/Tk, PERL and Python are easier than standard programming languages like Java, REBOL beats all of them taking simplicity as a key virtue in a complex programming environments. REBOL is probably the best tool to glue together components of your complex, distributed AI applications...So, forget complex shell scripts or CGI programs, and make simple things simple to do." -- Denis Susac

12-October-1999: Cyber India Online Ltd.(CIOL)

Program With REBOL, Naturally

"With REBOL, programming the computer is more about communicating rather than commanding. You can write REBOL scripts in minutes, and use them across no less than 30 different platforms. Can your favourite programming language do that?" --Mahesh Shantaram

29-September-1999: Rediff on the Net

Carl Sassenrath, Inventor of REBOL Language: An Exclusive Interview

"I cannot see languages like C++, Java, or PERL taking us to the stars. Object-oriented programming is not the answer. I can truly say this because I've been involved in object-oriented programming since the beginning. It does not increase productivity. It does not give better results. The answer to our problems rests in the natural characteristics of language and expression, not in objects." --Interview by Srikant Sreenivasan

Programming for Dummies: English-like Computer Language Dares to Unshackle Users from Brahmanism of Programmers

"Yet another cool feature is that the REBOL code is cross-platform. REBOL is today available on more than 30 platforms. So, Java is not the only one that allows you to write once and run anywhere. Again, Java is not as easy to learn and code in. Another pleasant surprise is the small size of the REBOL interpreter." --Srikant Sreenivasan

7-September-1999: Andover.Net Tech Sighting's Site of the Day

What's the Cause If You're Without REBOL?

"REBOL (pronounced REB-el) stands for Relative Expression-Based Object Language. It's a programming language similar to PERL, but lighter-weight and extremely cross-platform capable.

REBOL Might Be the Language for the Rest of Us

"For those of you who have mastered Perl, Python, Javascript and others, I tip my hat. You impress me the same way folks who can speak five languages impress me. I speak one and a half languages and couldn't write a line of Perl if my life depended on it. But the first time I looked at a line of REBOL code, I knew what it meant." --Derrick Story

27-August-1999: WebReview

Why REBOL Matters

"Does the world really need 'yet another programming language'? ...It's tough: productivity seems to come from power, and power seems to lead to complexity. But now and then we see an example of a product or a technology or an insight that makes simplicity and productivity turn out to be two sides of the same coin. And when greater productivity can be bought with less complexity, that's a breakthrough. It's just possible that the REBOL model contains the seeds of such a breakthrough." --Michael Swaine

26-August-1999: Osborne/McGraw-Hill

Osborne/McGraw-Hill Partners with REBOL Technologies to Publish Official REBOL Press

According to Brandon Nordin, Vice President and Group Publisher for Osborne/McGraw-Hill, "By working closely with REBOL Technologies' product development and user support groups, REBOL Press will become the ideal resource for all levels of developers using the product. REBOL Press will also allow Osborne to become part of the fast-emerging REBOL marketplace and the growing enthusiasm associated with it." McGraw-Hill and its subsidiary, Standard and Poors, were early users of REBOL.

19-August-1999: Cool Tools

Beyond Cool -- It's Revolutionary!

"We think that REBOL represents a really cool opportunity to 'code once-run anywhere,' an opportunity many of us geeks (and we use that term in the nicest possible way) have been looking for. Go for it and get that special tingly feeling only a Cool Tool can give you."

''Script Junkie'' Column: REBOL Bots

"Over the past two decades, my search for the perfect scripting language led me to work with companies such as HP, Amiga, and Apple.In that time, I investigated more than 50 different languages, from Ada to C, from Pascal to Lisp. I wanted a language that was very simple and readable with almost no syntax, yet very flexible with a wide degree of expressive freedom. It needed to allow a script to run on a great number of platforms without modification, have an extensive set of built-in data types that felt natural to humans, and smoothly support all of the standard network protocols, such as HTTP, FTP, POP, SMTP, NNTP, time, finger, whois, and more. And finally, so that I could use it everywhere, I wanted the entire package to be small (less than 200KB) with no installation hassle -- just copy it and run. More than anything else, I wanted a language that was friendly, usable, and highly productive....The result of this quest became the Relative Expression-Based Object Language (REBOL, pronounced REB-el), which was released free of charge late last year. I call REBOL a messaging language, because it's intended to be used in the same way as English: for communications, not just algorithms. It works equally well for expressing data as well as code. This aspect is its greatest strength; it's meant to offer a better approach to the exchange and interpretation of information among people, computers, and application software." --Carl Sassenrath

Language Helps in Pushing Web Content

"A recently released scripting language could make it easier to push large amounts of content to multiple Web sites. The language, REBOL, was created by REBOL Technologies (Ukiah, Calif.) and integrates code and data into network messages. REBOL's creators say it solves distributed computing tasks better than other languages (such as Perl) because it has built-in networking protocols, including HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP, and NNTP." --Lee Bruno and Mary Jander

REBOL is Cool

"If you want to experience both the Web and Internet programming from a different perspective, certainly give REBOL a try. You'll find out that some of the functions that take a long time to program in other languages are very straightforward in REBOL. That alone should be a good reason to try REBOL in your next application. " --Piroz Mohseni

New REBOL Messaging Language Aimed at Net Users

"Most languages are good at commands and expressions for executing algorithms, but less good at dealing with data and relationships. Sassenrath came up with the concept of dialects, a sub-language which can be tailored for a particular domain." --John Abbott
