[REBOL] Did someone find the Missing code accompanying this past "REBOL Bots" a
From: gerardcote:sympatico:ca at: 23-Aug-2002 10:48
As I was referenced this article ( See below for the reference) to introduce a friend
to REBOL Bots, I found that some code is
missing or broken. In particular the listings 2, 3 and 4 are missing or not complete.
========== Article's description and link taken from the old WebTechniques Web site
Employing syntax that's natural for humans and robots alike, this month Carl Sassenrath,
the creator of REBOL, shows us how and why
this language was made for messaging.
Is there anybody who can help with to find or replace these old listings code ? May be
someone of you have them filed on its hard
disk or archived them ... Who knows!
Note that I also sent my friend a memo advising that some code is flawed. In fact I pointed
him directly at the listing # 6.
To counterbalance my fault, I also pointed him to the study of many other interesting
articles discussing real interesting work
actually done with REBOL like wikis, Web sites and documentation generators, etc...
Just to be fair with some of you that could be interested readers, I also point you one
interesting - and functional - demo that
Carl provided in the discussed article above. (Interested readers, See listing 6).
As I can recall, recently there was a post about embedding REBOL code into email messages
for execution by a REBOL email server.
This was precisely the subject of this "REBOL Bot" article listing #6.
Really Hope this can be of some interest or usefulness to some ML readers.
I particularly found the subject very interesting for demoing REBOL capabilities to newbies
that are also Small Business Managers
but I find it a great inconvenience I didn't remember the code was broken before I sent
it to my friend.
Actually I hope that someone on the ML can help me to find these old missing scripts
and/or write new scripts for the listings 2, 3
and 4 of the articles.
Working alone I am currently able to complete the listing # 2 but I can't yet write the
Web-link-rules of the listing # 3 (Web
sniffing Bot) or the broken/missing code of the Web Server Agent of the Listing # 4.
I began studying some related library scripts and Web server code but it is overkill
for me at this moment...
