[REBOL] Re: multi-Thread

From: cyphre:seznam:cz at: 29-Nov-2002 19:32

Hello Arno, You don't need multithreading for chcker game IMO.You can use Rebol/View's event system (using RATE, making own event-handler etc.) for doing background tasks ...I know, it is not the real multi-threading but in such application like checkers it should be sufficient enough so the user(player) cannot notice it. If you have any questions just contact me directly, maybe I could help you with the game. regards, Cyphre P.S. I think it is possible to make(at some level) pre-emptive multitasking in current Rebol but it would need some more experimeting and I think there would be sure some performance problems...but this is just my speculation and I could be absolutely wrong. Would be cool if some threading guru step into this discussion. Carl? ;-)
