Author Bio
If Gregg Irwinseems familiar to you, it�s just because he reminds everyone of someone. His preference for human friendly programming languages led him to REBOL after 11 years as Visual Basic specialist (yes, he *really* used V1, and has the diskettes to prove it). His "claims to fame" would pale in comparison to yours and everyone elses, so don�t ask. He isn�t ashamed to say that he doesn�t like C and thinks "real programmers" can write in any @!#$ language they want (he gets a lot of flak about his BASIC background). His training to become a software engineer was as a Theatre Arts major. He was architect and lead developer on a mortgage origination system used by some of the top-ten banks in the U.S., and he has written code generators that should have spewed out over 1,000,000 lines of code by now; even a Windows resource compiler in pure VB.

Building on Part 1 of this article, not only can you create a working spreadsheet in just a few bytes using REBOL, but you can extend it to support printing, standard keyboard navigation, macros containing code, and even make it shareable and dynamically updatable—while still using only a few bytes of code.
