[REBOL] Rugby 4 artists? For the people ;-)

From: m::koopmans2::chello::nl at: 13-Jan-2002 22:10

Hey all, Your explanation is indeed very good Brett. May I include it in the docs somewhere? I will need to upgrade the documentation even more. It tells you how things work, but the common pitfalls and problems in distributed computing probably need to be touched as well, as well as a cool web site and a good faq etc. (a friend of mine calls this "the Bill gates factor"). Note that there currently is a Rugby beta version that includes XML-rpc as well, see: The only reason that it is beta is... the docs. Rugby was designed with the concept of Web services in mind: given Rebol on 42 platforms, can I make web services in an hour. Yes. And with XML-RPC included access them from anywhere else as well. What I won't do: include Rugby programs in the Rugby releases. It is seamless distributed computing, and in ways it is a solution for problems I don't know. What problems may be solved with it is up to you. I do know that with no difference between code and data (Rebol) and seamless distributed computing most things become possible, it is just hard to get into the mental mode where you just don't care about locations of things anymore. For example Graham's Gorim: it is a chatbox, but it really is a program that stores and displays in memory messages. It just so happens that your memory is somewhere else.... --Maarten
