[REBOL] Re: rebol,erlang,yaws

From: bry:itnisk at: 16-Oct-2003 11:38

well i'm not gonna be in the office until at least monday, maybe longer depending on how I feel (had a little knee operation yesterday, everything went fine but sort of tired out) the stuff I've done so far is pretty simple: 1. I took my asynchronous pluggable protocols article concept - trk=DXRSS_WEBDEV and expanded it (fixed some of the shoddy code that was for newbies to follow, all those joins) so that the reb:// protocol has a format of reb://{metadata comes here}/protocol body comes here. The metadata in between the second and third / contains among other things the possibility of passing a password, if this password matches a system saved password the code gets evaluated straight off without going to the form, I am currently working on a similar protocol for erlang. Of course the problem with this is that one opens new instances of one's script via this method, although with Erlang this may be soluble. 2. I have been working on trying to get joe armstrongs client/server tutorial on erlang and c working together er/client_server.html to go with rebol and erlang working together. the most reasonable goal I see is to get gabriele's async- protocol to work with it. Somewhat difficult as I this falls under research not job related, although part of my job is pretty much research but I do sometimes feel guilty taking off from my main goals. I figure at some point I will hopefully get an insight (just because I'm one of those guys who tends to stumble to a particular place, and then everything goes really smooth after that), and a combination of 1 and 2 becomes possible.
