[REBOL] Rugby 4: release and documentation!

From: m::koopmans2::chello::nl at: 15-Aug-2001 13:59

Hi List, Rugby 4 has been released to the Reb as rugby4.r You can find a distribution and documentation on: Many thanks to Allen Kamp for web hosting and for Ernie van der Meer for co-coding. Rugby is a rebol request broker that simplifies distributed computing dramatically. What's new? - poll-for-result has been dropped and changed to result-available? and get-result. See the docs for usage. Rationale was that you couldn't distinguish between false values when using poll-for-result. - The serialization mechanism has been greatly enhanced and works much better. - sexec also supports the /oneway and /deferred refinements - Rugby servers generate stub code that can be automatically imported by clients using get-rugby-service <url> This provides wrapper functions for all rugby service functions available on <url> to the local machine. Effectively you don't need to type rexec [ echo "lala" ] but you can just do echo "lala" which handles everything transparently. See the docs. Very very very cool. Thanks to Ernie! - Added the source of Rugby in modules with a built system in the main distrib. For those who want to add/change. - Added documentation (The Rebol Zine article updated for this release) Enjoy and let me know what you think. --Maarten
