[REBOL] Re: REBOL versions

From: sunandadh:aol at: 5-Dec-2002 17:54

Hi Frantisek, Welcome to Rebol -- Let me attempt your first three questions.
> Am I right in my assumption that REBOL/View is exactly the > same thing as REBOL/Core with some GUI stuff added?
Basically yes. Any script written for /Core should work on /View. There are minor incompatibilities (as there always is in evolving software) but not much.
> Can I develop my > application under REBOL/View on Win98 and then run it as CGI under > REBOL/Core on Linux?
In theory yes. In practice several people have had trouble using /View as a CGI processor. If you develop on Win98 /Core you should have no problems running that on a Linux /Core -- and vice versa.

View/Pro includes sound. But you pay for that. It is the same distribtion as the free /View but with a licence key to unlock extra goodies. Try: open: sound:// in /View and you'll get the message:
> Feature not available in this REBOL
Pay money. Get key. Lose the message. Free sound is a regular request for /View. There have been some suggestions on this list recently the Rebol Tech might be thinking about it. hth Sunanda
