¤ was part of money's design discussion, and I have it in my format exploration. In addition to the typing issue, it's universal but also universally unknown. :^\ One thought I had in format was that $ could be literal for that symbol, but ¤ could be replaced based on a locale setting.

While it may be of no importance, on Code Golf Stack Exchange, Red is the Language of the Month, which means more people will try to learn it and use it in the contest of code golf (where it does quite well, other than requiring a Red[] header :)

@hiiamboris
Great!
Once we finish HOFs there'll be no competition ;)
Gregg Irwin
@greggirwin
Thanks for letting us know @wezl:privacytools.io !
Let people know they can come here for tips and tricks.
For the compass problem, others just use a literal, so Red could do that too, avoiding prin.

@pekr to get the Euro symbol, on the mac you type Option + Shift + 2, and on windows Alt and type 0128 The universal currency symbol was a really dumb idea, as it is nobody's currency, so basically a wasted unicode glyph that only confuses people. The committee running the Unicode consortium are dumb as doorposts; constantly making it more and more complex, and now busy turning it into a completely unsystematic clip art database that is only accessed by number, which is a misguided thing to do.
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris

on windows Alt and type 0128

Two issues: smaller keyboards don't have numpad, and you have to memorize the code which is a waste of brain cells. That's why I also asked Gregg not to use this symbol in format.
Oh and 3rd issue: I've experienced that in this load of crap which is W10 Alt+numpad entering didn't work in a whole range of revisions.

@djrondon
do you have a fix to run Red on Big Sur ?
Gregg Irwin
@greggirwin
You'll need to run Red in a container or VM @djrondon.

@meijeru
Concerning Red publicity as language of the month in Stack Exchange: is the following statement given there actually correct?
  • Red doesn't have reserved words, instead blocks (arrays / lists of arbitrary values) are used as arguments to functions. *
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
Looks like a few topics mixed in one sentence. A typo?
Galen Ivanov
@GalenIvanov
@meijeru @hiiamboris It's probably my fault. @wezl:privacytools.io created the nomination, then I added more text to it. This sentence clearly doesn't make much sense. I suggest the following edit:
  • Red doesn't have reserved words, even conditionals and looping constructs are functions that use blocks (arrays / lists of arbitrary values) for their bodies.
hiiamboris
@hiiamboris
Well, these functions are natives written in Red/System code. You wouldn't go far without them. Though: you can rename them, and build your own loops on top of that.
If it's the "reserved words" you want to put accent onto, how about:
  • Red doesn't have reserved words. Even conditionals and looping constructs are ("native" function) values provided by runtime, which can be assigned any names.
Galen Ivanov
@GalenIvanov
@hiiamboris Thank you! I don't remember what I meant, but it was probably that Red's syntax is uniform and conditionals/looping are achieved with function calls and don't need reserved words and special syntax.
I can edit the page in SE if there are no other suggestions.

Hello, ive been away for some time...does red have the necessary pieces to use as a web server yet, or still in progress? Thx

We are near, I suppose we will see something before the end of the year.

@rebolek I expect your web server uses an IO branch?

@RayMPerry
Something I've always wondered about this language: Has someone used it in each domain highlighted in this graphic? https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-xhOP35Dm99w/UuXFKgY2dlI/AAAAAAAAAGA/YQu98_pPDjw/s1600/reichart-abstraction-diagram.png
Is the split in the line mean to represent Red/System?
Toomas Vooglaid
@toomasv
Yes, some are using it in each domain all the time, others are working more in one or other end. From left: Red/System, Red (proper), and dialects like Parse, VID, Draw.

Does REPEAT intentionally ignore alterations to its index word? It makes it a lot less flexible than REBOL's REPEAT function.

REBOL:

repeat i length? [a b c] [print i i: i + 2]
1
== 3

Red:

repeat i length? [a b c] [print i i: i + 2]
1
2
3
== 5

@RayMPerry some examples:
  • Hardware: https://www.red-lang.org/2019/07/gpio-port-for-raspberry-pi.html
  • Drivers: The Red Wallet has its own USB driver built in.
  • OS: @BeardPower has done some experiments in this area. So even writing your own OS from boot is possible, but also system applications that run just above that.
  • Apps and scripting are the bulk of what people do with Red.
  • DSLs: There are plenty of those in the wild, along with some that come built into Red.
