[REBOL] Some very very strange behaviors
From: luca::truffarelli::it at: 24-Sep-2004 19:10
I got some VERY strange behaviors with Rebol on my WindowsXP.
First of all, the computer is a box that I use at work so it is installed
by someone else other than me. This mean that I know what is installed in
but I can't not be sure of it.
Second, the problems are rised with any kinf of connection to internet I
use. I tryed thru the proxy, thru a dial-up, thru my ADSL, .... So the
problems are not caused by some network problems.
The is some of the problems, be prepared to hear things that no men have
1) I can't download every rebol plugin applications. Someone load but
http://www.rebol.net/plugin/demos/rebtris.html DON'T LOAD
But this is just the last, and less significant, problem.
2) I open a rebol console (/core /view 1.2.1-1.2.47-1.2.48 is the same)
and write aa: read http://www.yahoo.com it read the page. Them if I write
it again it read the page again, and again and again and again and again
and again and again and again and again and STOP. After 9 hopes it doesn't
read the page no more. I can reproduce the problem how many time I want. I
jyst need to close the console and open it again. :-)
3) This is a bit complicated, but in few words I wrote a client/server
application. Every x minutes the server send a PING to the client to
verify it is there. After a random period of time the server send the PING
but if the client is on my computer is doesn't receive it. I traced it
thru tcpdump and I saw the the packet arrives but the 'wait doens't wake
up. This happen only if in the 'wait there is a 'time data type. It's
funny, do you agree?
I think it is enough. :-)
So I quite sure the problem is between my computer (or the TCP stack of my
computer) and Rebol (or Rebol like style to access the net). But want
could be the problem? Where can I investigate? It is too strange for me.
Please, write me something, a "Don't worry be happy" is enough. :-)
