Haven't actually done that, but have thought about doing it for a while.
Only problem is how do you check that you can trust the code that you
receive? Even if it is on an internal LAN, you have to consider the
possibility of the LAN being opened in the future (accidently or otherwise).
I wrote this
prior to the new test versions of REBOL and while it mentions Rugby it is
still relevent to what you are doing. You might want to look at it.
I'd say if you keep your script, make it into a dialect and add some
authentication mechanism to it - otherwise you might have some unexpected
I believe some time ago Ladislav and Jeff (?) worked on a script that could
deal with untrusted code in a fairly robust manner, but I cannot remember
Now after getting the cautions out of the way - it does sound cool. Exactly
why REBOL was designed like it is I imagine. :^)
