[REBOL] Re: Commander.c adds Shell access for Rebol

From: kracik:mbox:dkm:cz at: 21-Mar-2001 14:46

Hi, No, UNIX functions like fork() don't work in Windows. Commander.c won't even compile in Windows, because it uses UNIX specific include files. Also, REBOL's graphical console in Windows can't be redirected. Perhaps there could be another way to communicate than Null characters in stdout. Someone on this list posted a solution where REBOL writes the command to a file, and a simple program checks if the file exists, executes and then deletes it. I will try to write a solution where REBOL and "Commander" communicate with a TCP socket, and stdout is returned to REBOL. It would work both in Windows and UNIX. -- Michal Kracik GS Jones wrote:
