[REBOL] Dialling Out

From: justin::halls::brunel::ac::uk at: 30-Aug-2000 9:08

Hi I am a newcomer to REBOL and would like to use it to solve a particular programming problem. I have a stand-alone application, which is not attended by a user, which occasionaly needs to send or receive e-mails. Rather than programming all the code at a low level, REBOL seemed ideally suited to performing the network interaction processes through an application generated script and a CREATE_PROCESS call to REBOL.EXE My problem is that the machine does not have a permanent connection to the network, but needs to dial out when required. Does anyone have a suitable script, or a technique which can be used to get the machine to dial out a connection (using a connection defined in DUN) without requiring any user interaction? I woud have thought that this would be a very common requirement (most networking tools have the ability to dial out if they are not connected, although simply invoking DUN still requires a user confirmation) and I would suggest that it would be a very worthwhile enhancment to REBOL.
