Introduction

The Rebol language support in this plugin is pretty rudimentary. It supplies
* syntax highlighting
* running rebol code directly from inside the NB IDE
* recognizing rebol script files as such
* code folding

Changes in version 1.1:
* Code folding implemented
* File choosers now recognize Rebol files
* All project files are saved upon a Run Rebol File command


The code folding is pretty rudimentary. The Rebol header is always foldable. Other blocks and strings are foldable if they span four lines or more. This sometimes looks a bit messy, and I'm open to brilliant ideas about how to do it better. I haven't found a straightforward way to change the appearence of the fold symbol, so the three dots will do for now. In a later release, blocks may be replaced by [...], not only by ... (The NB 7.4 release will have other enhancements to the fold look, so we'll have to see that first).

Comments are welcome.
