[REBOL] Re: timers in Core would be enough imo :-) (was) Re: Re: REBOL multithr

Romano, et al << I do not think that multitasking can be easily done in Rebol for a reason: i could be wrong, but if you make a dispatch in the middle of a function and two tasks are executing the same function, the function's locals will be corrupted, because both the context and the function body would be shared between tasks...>> What about non-preemptive multitasking? Shouldn't that be possible? I freely admit total ignorance about the REBOL core design, which might make even that infeasible, and there would almost certainly be other issues releated to REBOL's dynamic nature, but it might be an alternate path worth investigating. --Gregg
