[REBOL] Cool small program. :)

From: bga:bug-br at: 20-Dec-2002 10:49

After not doing anything with Rebol for the past months (mostly beacuse, as you guys are probably aware, I use BeOS and Rebol is as buggy as it can be on this platform), I decided to create something fun with it. The result was Daily Strip. You can get it from: What it does is to fetch some comic strips from the internet and display them in a window. It is not the most exciting Rebol program ever nor it uses any advanced technique. In fact, I am probably doing some dumb stuff in the code and using more code then it is necessary, but the main point is that I commented the entire code (there are more comments than code in it) to try to help people just sarting with Rebol. Any comments/suggestions/critics are welcome. I hope you guys like it. -Bruno Ps: I developed it for BeOS so the script itself is called "Daily Strip" with a space in the name adno ".r" extension. Just rename it to DailyStrip.r or something like that if you're using Windows. Also the first line is a she-bang line to make the script automatically run with Rebol. It assumes the rebol (view) executable is located in the /boot/ home/config/bin directory, so just change that to the correct location on your system if you're running Linux.
