it says at the bottom:
Intel Compiler

Before you ask... Robert Purves (New Zealand) is heading a team that is
working on the new Intel compiler. This is a brand new, built from the
ground up, product. But even with the mountainous task standing before them,
Robert says the peak is in sight. Stay tuned for more info.

So I imagine for MacTel users it's a bit like using the AppleScript Editor
without being able to press Run.

Good to know that the Editor works on MacTel though, thanks for sharing.

Interestingly, for me anyway, as a few on this list have expressed the
opinion that Rev should go openSource, a thread on the FutureBASIC list is
concerned about the future of FutureBASIC now that it's revenue stream has
been cut.

I guess time will tell.
