[REBOL] Re: 'launch and scripts running other scripts.
From: jasonic:cunliffe:verizon at: 19-Dec-2001 11:58
I tried 'launch and it works for me. I wrote a launch-test.r script:
view layout [
button "imagine" [launch %imagine.r]
button "quit" [unview/all]
My %imagine.r does a number of things, so is a good test I think: uses
request-file to select a PNG file, then extract and execute an embedded
rebol script, opening another window printing the output if the embedded
script if needs be. The nice thing is I can keep on doing this as long as I
liek becuase launch-test gui is just sitting their independently :-) Just
what I think we both needed.
That is how it behaves when I run it from within the _same_ directory it
But when I move it somewhere else in the directory structure, for example:
then I do have a obvious problem. REBOL/View looks for a REBOL installation
in ../tools directory and if it does not find it, then throws up its
installation GUI [the first time]. The next time it will run dierctly as it
finds rebol.exe in ../tools.
This behavior is something generally I still don't understand about
REBOL/View [Win98se]. Namely why and when REBOL/View plants more versions of
rebol.exe all over the file structure. I don't know if my config is damaged,
or if there is a simple refinement or script param needed to avoid this.
I hope this is some help to you, and that we both get sorted soon.
