[REBOL] Re: REBOL IOS, many Q's. :)

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 29-Apr-2002 9:09

Hi Ed, << Is it event driven, for example, can it detect events that occur on the host machine? Can communication pipe lines be set up between hosts, so the event occuring locally is communicated to a watching machine? >> I believe it uses polling to keep machines in sync, and the "desktop" functionality is currently centered around file sync'ing and client-side function calls to the server that post data (post-funcs). As Gabriele said, you can build anything you want on top of it, or alongside it. We have a server proces that uses Rugby to perform certain remote procedure calls which runs along with the IOS server. You really have to experience it. --Gregg
