[REBOL] Re: cheyenne and RSP

From: compkarori:g:mail at: 14-Jan-2007 6:00

Alan, Ignore those guys ... they're still hung over from New Year! They're talking about client side scripting, but RSP is server side scripting to create dynamic html. If you didn't read my response, then it's in the rebol.org archive. I built a server application using Cheyenne that dynamically populates the mailbox names etc using Firebird and ODBC.
