[REBOL] Re: REBOL Relational Object-oriented Database

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?
