[REBOL] safe-object-transfert.r - [request for peer review]

From: rebol::meurrens::org at: 10-Jul-2003 0:12

Hello all, [Sorry if you receive this message more than once... due to recent rebol list problems...] script safe-object-transfert.r PURPOSE: REBOL objects provide a convenient way to send/receive data. However, unless relying on a trusted source ***and*** using a crypted transfert, issuing a 'do on received data is potentially dangerous; relying on methods of the objects may also be dangerous, unless in trusted situations. The 'construct word provides a partial solution. But problems arise if you want to transfert ***a complex data structure *** (objects encapsulated into objects). Our 'safe-object-transfer.r adresses this issue. The script is extensively documented. SCRIPTS: HTML-ified SOURCES: OUTPUT OF THE 2 DEMO'S: are available at Test and/or enjoy... !!!!!!!
