[REBOL] Re: Multi-threading?

From: kimm2:mcmaster:ca at: 3-Jul-2002 8:24

<<Thats a problem of asynchronous io, not of multi-threading. Proof: thready Java now adds asynchronous io for performance. One thread/connection is heavy overhead. Rebol can currently do it partly. the basics are there, but the protocols have to be rewritten to use it. for selfmade protocols like rugby it works. AFAIK Holger is working on it.>> Is there a mail protocol that allows for synchronus operation? One thought I had for an asynchronus approach to my problem would be, for the REBOL script to first pull 5 emails from the inbox. From there, concurrently process the 5 emails. Is there a guide for Rugby, I think it's a little over my head (being a newbie and all). And what's thready Java? Is Java better suited for this type or operation? Sorry for all the questions guys! But thanks for all your great responses! Matt
