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

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.
