[REBOL] Re: UHURU/RSL/? summary

From: m:koopmans2:chello:nl at: 25-May-2001 21:03

Hi Chris, I think I start believing in the RSL again ;-) Some suggestions from my side: 1) Make the repository database'd. We can use MySQL for that, as bindings for both Core and /Pro /Command exist. Should simplify the keyword search part. 2) Style guides shouldn't be that hard. Formatting is most of the time what make a script readable: that can be automated. Undocumented functions/objects can be detected and a reason for replying to the author the original script with automatically inserted hints, such as <Insert documentation here> My point with 2) is that if you automate, people can code in whatever style they wish as long as they use Rebols built-in doc facilities. This is a realistic approach (IMHO) to get a library/repository up and running. 3) Namespace placement (on submission) can be automated too, I think. One other option is some distributed script network. Thsi can be easily built with the next release of Rugby, as that will feature oneway, deffered and redirect messages. The latter allow you to do something like rexec/oneway/redirect [message] [destination-list] which simplifies P2P messages flying around. --Maarten
