[REBOL] Re: help with mail attachment please

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 16-Aug-2001 21:42

Hello David! On 15-Ago-01, you wrote: DK> What we are talking about is NOT a minor feature. If *nix DK> platforms had no command line, you would implement the needed DK> connections in whatever way required. Apple just had to support a simple way to pass arguments. (AmigaOS dos it different too, but it does it BETTER.) It doesn't. As Holger and Jeff confirmend, getting args is complicated on the Mac. This does not mean REBOL should not support it. It should. But you fail to understand that RT is not Microsoft nor Apple. They have other things in the todo-list and not enough time to do everything in one day. So, I'm sure better support on the Mac will come one day. If you want it to happen NOW, why don't you code some C code that gets Applescript args and calls main() with the standard argc and argv parameters? You could donate it to RT and they could include it in the Mac build. RT has limited resources, period. Implementing all the things in the todo list will require time, period. If you can't wait, blame the MacOS for being stupid, or blame the market for being senseless. People at RT are doing their best.
