[REBOL] Re: Function "LAUNCH" - Usage questions
From: riusa:email:it at: 10-Jun-2002 9:11
Thank you (sigh!).
When a Rebol version will include a multiprocessing/multithreading
feature?! It is a very important feature in a programming language! True
multitasking! Python already does! Java already does! And... how about
low level socket programming? Is Rebol an Internet programming language
Thank you for your answers!
