[REBOL] Re: Function "LAUNCH" - Usage questions
From: riusa:email:it at: 11-Jun-2002 16:51
I partially agree with you. Multitasking is not needed only to develop
server processes, since there could be many occasions where I should
need more than one process in "parallel" at-a-time, even in client
I wish to simplify the life of Rebol developers, so I can say I can use
every instrument to create multiprocesses: multiprocess (like a FORK),
multithread (Ms Windows-style) either preemptive or cooperative (even if
the last one is not the best system... however is a good beginning!).
