[REBOL] Re: using awake?

Hi Volker, On Saturday, June 15, 2002, 2:18:39 PM, you wrote: VN> so i want to use port/awake to process a tcp-request and respond a result. VN> and not to stop the do-events. VN> would this work, and how do i use 'awake? Yes, it will. You need to add your port to system/ports/wait-list so that it is waited for by DO-EVENTS. Then, you need to write an handler: port/awake: func [port /local data] [ ; there's something in port ; with no-wait you could: while [not empty? data: copy port] [prin data] ; you should return TRUE or FALSE ; TRUE: the WAIT function should return ; FALSE: continue waiting false ] This is almost all.
