"If you ever missed the powerful features of the REBOL language in your favourite programming language (in my case E) then this one is for you. It's a shared library that can be accessed from nearly any programming language. It allows executing REBOL code from within your preferred language. Actually it is calling the REBOL interpreter in the background. But you don't have to care about it."

Flames are entertaining, but as mentioned before--it's good to see some real work being done. I'll enjoy trying out this library!

|Try it out. But don't be disappointed: Internally it just starts the normal rebol interpreter executable. It doesn't have its own rebol engine. The advantage of this library is that it handles passing back the result of the rebol code to the programm calling the library.|

Why Rebol? I mean, the library you've written could easily be extended
to any interpreted language. If it's as useful as it appears, why
not extend it's scope?

How about expanding it to really, run _anything_ ?
As I understand it, its not much more than a better
SystemTagList() (IIRC SystemTagList() does not support
THAT would be very useful.

Hmm.. I didnt recall correctly.. It *does* support
async run. Well then, its the thingy with getting
returncode from the proggy. Should be possible with
getting rc-variable or similar..
