Carl Sassenrats Rebol is a language that allows very compact syntax but still has s very understandable syntax. something that we desire too.

This is a course about recent languages such as rebol or factor or Perl 6 comparing different strategies. And the question above all is still what we get (or got) in Perl 5 out of that, since turning Perl 6 into rebol with a set of macros isn't that hard.
