Direct Access to All Distributions

Older test versions are also available for download. To access them, locate the directory below that matches your platform. Within that directory, many files may be listed as raw binary executables (not zip or tg) using version encoded filenames.

Click the "last modified" link to sort file dirs by release date. Note that you may need to right-click to download (because some files have no extensions) or use REBOL (see bottom of page).

Note: SDK and Command products require your valid license.key file in order to enable the extended product features. Purchasing REBOL products helps us to make further changes and improvements. If you have not purchased products in the past, please consider doing so in the future.

How to Unpack and Run REBOL

For Unix/BSD/Linux systems, no installation is required. You can extract REBOL using a shell command such as:

tar -xzf rebol2602094.tar.gz

This will extract the files to a directory called dist (but note we plan to be changing that name soon.) Then, just run REBOL with a line like:

./rebol

And, enjoy being a rebol!

Downloading Raw Binaries

You can use REBOL to easily download un-gzip executable files. Run REBOL, then type:

>> data: read/binary http://www.rebol.net/builds/092/rebol2600092
>> write/binary %rebol-new data

Do not forget the /binary or the file will get corrupted.
