[REBOL] Re: Watson - what is so special about it?

From: dada:gecko:verizon at: 25-Aug-2002 21:22

One of the things that excited me about Rebol was this kind of cross-platform interconnectivity. True, let's build a Watson-like product in Rebol. Fine. The trouble I've found -- this weekend trying to automate some file handling tasks on my iMac -- is that Rebol is not native to each OS. An instance of Rebol has to be running in order to execute the .r scripts -- or am I missing something? I ended up using Applescript, because it would run on double-click from the desktop. Same with some apps I'm working on for windows -- Rebol has to be running to launch the apps. Is there a way around this? If not, then I'm afraid that platform-dependency is what's going to happen, and Rebol will be lost. Hoping for a solution, sd On Sunday, August 25, 2002, at 04:36 , Petr Krenzelok wrote:
