[REBOL] Re: REBOL Relational Object-oriented Database

From: louisaturk:eudoramail at: 21-Jun-2001 17:03

Andrew, Thanks for replying! You can tell I still have a lot to learn about REBOL. :>) My study of REBOL keeps getting interrupted, as I have many responsibilities. I really feel out of place among all the pros on this list. But I see some important uses for REBOL so I keep trying. Yes, I have both books and have been reading them. I have read the For Dummies book several times. It has enabled me to write several very useful programs (thanks Ralph!). It does not, however, say much about relational object-oriented databases. The Official Guide would be a lot easier for me to understand if it contained a very simple but working bare bones Relational Object-oriented Database right at the beginning before going into so much detail. After running the program and seeing what it does, I could then more easily understand what the book is explaining. I have looked for such a program on the CD that came with the book, but so far haven't found one. The database functions Carl wrote for me were so concise I was hoping for one more like them to complete this program. I was hoping for him to write this function so that I could give him credit for all of the actual database functions in the program, but if he is too busy to help I can certainly understand that, and help from anyone will be appreciated. Most people on this list are probably using MySQL or some other such database. There doesn't seem to be much interest in a REBOL Relational Object-oriented Database. Am I being foolish is wanting to learn how to do this? Or is it just that I shouldn't bother the list when the information is already available in The Official Guide? Or am I just asking too many questions in one post? Louis At 09:59 PM 6/21/2001 +1200, you wrote:
