REBOL (Relative Expression Based Object Language, pronounced /ˈrɛbəl/ REB-əl) is a cross-platform[1] data exchange language and a multi-paradigm dynamic programming language originally designed by Carl Sassenrath for network communications and distributed computing.

REBOL introduces the concept of dialecting: small, optimized, domain-specific languages for code and data,[1][2] which is also the most notable property of the language according to its designer:

REBOL has been used to program Internet applications (both client- and server-side), database applications, utilities, and multimedia applications.[1][4][5]
