[REBOL] Re: Building scripts

From: chalz:earthlink at: 16-Jan-2002 13:27

I'm just making sure I get fully what you're asking. Essentially, something like Java's method of including libraries like import x.y.z for more 'refined' control of what's included? Only, instead of copying the extraneous code into the compiled result, do something more like (I'm not using totally proper REBOL, I know; demonstration purpose): math: link rdb://math.rlib ... ... result: math/tally arg1 arg2 Where 'rdb' refers to a site and port for a REBOL database, and 'rlib' refers to REBOL library, and accessing a specific function within the math.rlib could be used like accessing a member of a block. Of course, it would require the script be executed in a networked environment (you could re-define the REBOL library database with rdb:// of some flavor - but most people executing REBOL already are. Is this what you mean? I asked Carl about this a while back, but it was kind of long - he might have skipped it, or taken me for someone who never looked at IOS ;) --Charles
