Thanks for the quick response, Bo. I'll try the error routine you
suggested, but that same code works as expected on other REBOL platforms
(Win32, Linux, Solaris, etc.).
As for the .r association, WinCE doesn't work the way Win9x/NT, etc. does
with respect to asking the user to associate the file type. Instead, an
action must be explicitly added to the registry, which is what I did.
Unfortunately, the syntax I used (which works for all other apps I've
installed on the PocketPC) doesn't seem to apply to rebol.exe for some
As for the PPC, I misunderstood the acronym as PocketPC (which I have seen
it used in the press) instead of a PPC processor. That at least helps to
clarify that misunderstanding :)
One last question that occurred to me - how does one set the REBOL_HOME
variable on WinCE? Since there is no start up files like autoexec.bat to
set the environment variable, is there another way to do this? It is
especially troublesome without a keyboard on the PocketPC, where full paths
have to be tapped into the pop-up keyboard (I real pain!). Thanks in
advance for your insights.
