REBOL

(Relative Expression-Based Object Language) A programming language that runs on a variety of platforms. Created by Carl Sassenrath, REBOL is a very concise language both in syntax and in implementation: the entire development system fits in only 200KB. Similar to object-oriented programming, REBOL does not separate the data from the code, and all REBOL commands can be renamed, allowing for dialects to be created.
