A great point. I recently was able to create a compressed, encrypted
binary data storage file using a stack and a single line of code. This
data file stores text data along with imades in 3 different formats.
This data file is actually a stack with no business logic and is opened
by my app invisibly and data selectively moved to the gui, edited there
and then moved back to the inv stack to save. Talk about simple. Doing
the same in VB would be very complicated. I imagine RB too.
Btw, regarding speed issues, I think there have been a number of speed
coding challenges between RB and RR with no conclusive winner. Perhaps
Frank can be more specific with regard to areas he feels RR runs slow?
Also, last time I looked, RR compiles scripts 'on the fly' like Java.
Didn't know RB was a compiler. Must be tough on edit/compile/run/debug
cycles. Perhaps it's an interpreter like RR and compiles during runtime?
I don't know.
