[REBOL] Re: ARRG...IIS/PWS - Help configuring erebol
From: tim:johnsons-web at: 17-Feb-2002 13:22
Let me make both a suggestion (and I don't know if it would be any
help) and ask a question:
I have configured rebol to work on PWS on both win NT 4.0 and
windows 98 in the following manner
Add a new string value to:
with name of
and the value of
c:\rebol\rebol.exe -cs %s
Of course, substituting whatever your path would be..
Now here's my question:
What is 'erebol?
I hope I've been some help...
