I'm afraid I've made a mistake here. I said I needed to do this without /View, but that's
not true. I need to do it without doing any other GUI stuff, since transforming my 0s
and 1s is supposed to happen on a server, which will send an image back to a web browser.
Since Unisys still is pursuing the LZW licence thing, I guess saving a PNG is the best
alternative. So creating some sort of BMP from the 0s and 1s, sending them to rebol and
retrieving them as a PNG (using /View if it takes, but without doing any GUI stuff),
seems to be a good solution. I'll look into it next week.
Thanks, everybody who shared their opinions and tips!
