[REBOL] Suggestion for Rebol
From: slok00::yahoo::com at: 27-Sep-2001 14:43
I don't post much on this list but I have some time
free today and decide to post some thoughts.
One of the things that I like RT to work on will be
better handling of proxy on View and specifically
for the MS platforms.
Currently, we have to key in the proxy settings.
It would be good if it can take settings from
windows or MSIE.
Example. I'm a remote user and work from home, office
or while travelling. All these various locations can
have different proxy settings. Proxy at work place,
no proxy at home and proxy of ISP while travelling.
Now, let's take this a step further.
What if I have 2 work places. Each work places has
its own proxy. This could possibly give rise to
chained-proxy issues. At least, that's what happening
to me on the web browser. Only MSIE is able to goes
through the various proxy setting automatically.
Netscape, Opera, Mozilla fails to do so and requires
I can think of another example. Not just using View.
But think about Rebol IOS. I would think that it is
build on the fundamentals of what Rebol Core/View has.
Now a user using the IOS and its reblets moving
Is the user require to change proxy settings etc while
on the move?
As a user, I would appreciate NOT having to configure
stuffs while on the move and focus on getting work
Another suggestion is Unicode support. I understand
that RT has it on their to-do list. Perhaps they
can share with us more on that.
Eg. Tcl strings are UTF-8 and I think Java strings are
UTF-16 (I may be wrong)
