[REBOL] Re: using Rebol for mail client app

From: chalz:earthlink at: 19-Apr-2002 1:10

This is my personal opinion, from what I've read, without trying IOS. But you might want to use REBOL/Core (for a text interface) or REBOL/View (for a gui) for your mail client. I don't really think you need IOS for all of that. My impression of IOS is that it's a whole suite of programs and systems and such. REBOL/Core and REBOL/View are free to work with and such (though REBOL/View/Pro costs a few bucks). There's also REBOL/Command for a couple hundred bucks, for the pros out there. If all you're after is a thin mail client, I think /Core or /View would be plenty. You could even use an HTML interface to /Core code, so you don't have to learn any new GUI coding (not that /View is all that difficult).
