[REBOL] Re: Function "LAUNCH" - Usage questions

From: riusa:email:it at: 11-Jun-2002 16:51

Hi Gabriele, 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 applications. 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!). Bye! --Alessandro--
