[REBOL] Re: OODB in Rebol

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 1-Nov-2002 11:59

Hi Miguel, << Does anyone know if an OO database exists in Rebol like ZODB in Python or Poet in Java? >> Not at the present time. I don't know of any bindings to Poet, O2, Matisse, or any others, and there isn't one written in REBOL; probably for two reasons. 1) There is a long-standing bug in direct file access seeking, which would make it difficult. 2) REBOLs native format is very capable all by itself, whether you store things in "serialized" format, plain block structures, or something else. Since it's good enough to handle a probably couple thousand records, there isn't a great impetus to build something. --Gregg
