[ALLY] Re: REBOL 2.5 Released

From: bo:rebol at: 28-Mar-2001 15:33

Leave it to the press to pollute the acronym space! Does the WinCE have a shell? If so, is there an equivalent of SET or SETENV on it? That would be the only way I could think of to set the REBOL_HOME env var. -Bo On 28-Mar-2001/15:45-6:00, [mike_riley_--hotmail--com] wrote:
