[REBOL] Re: 'launch and scripts running other scripts.

From: bzr:francenet at: 1-Jan-2002 9:10

Hi, The macintosh version of rebol/view also insists on creating FIVE copies of the executable the first time it runs. It is very irritating, and I cannot find any reason for doing that. If you try to delete them, they are automatically re-created at the next run. The unix version has another ennoyance. When it runs for the first time, it apparently wants to rewrite the executable file. It is OK if you have your own version of the program, but if you install rebol in a well known directory (/bin or /usr/bin for example) for a public usage, rebol stops and complains about the rebol file being not found or not writable. RT says that rebol is very easy to install, just copy and run, but I do not agree. There seems to be a lot of unnecessary complicated things going on in our back, and there is not explanation of them anywhere. It is a pity because rebol is really a great language which I try to promote in my company, but I need arguments to refute criticisms against this strange behaviour.
