[REBOL] Antwort: Re: Antwort: Re: Concurrent access to data file

Anybody with a URL where I can RTFM on "Serialisation on Servers" for
dummies? further is there some way to implement "Object serialisation"
in REBOL without doing handstands?

It depends on the kind of access you are doing. File locking would
cause waiting too.
The efficient way to handle concurrency on a set of data is to use
transactions and a good scheduler. This is not very simple, and it
does not seem to be applicable to the case discussed here, at
least as I understood it.
A simple serialization server should be fine in this case IMHO.
