Re: [REBOL] Re: Rebol vs PHP

From: jthsmith:unm at: 26-Jan-2001 13:03

Hello, Graham, I've emailed Dan at REBOL about an eval version. Haven't heard back yet, but hopefully I will soon. Sounds like ODBC over the network will work, which is a major problem with using PHP for this project. Hopefully everything will work nicely. Thanks for your help, Justin ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2001 11:30:01 +1300 From: Graham Chiu <[gchiu--compkarori--co--nz]> Reply-To: [rebol-list--rebol--com] To: [rebol-list--rebol--com] Subject: [REBOL] Re: Rebol vs PHP Hi Justin, On Thu, 25 Jan 2001 11:26:45 -0700 (MST) Justin Smith <[jthsmith--unm--edu]> wrote:

Examples are given in the manual that comes with Command :-)

Submit a business reason to [bo--rebol--com] and he may send you the eval version. I used the eval version accessing ODBC across a network and found no problems. However, there were major problems with ODBC and the database I was using - Interbase. You would have to check with RT how compatible it would be with Access. But I was able to use Rebol/command to spider a suppliers password protected website, grab pricing information, and insert the data back into my web server which I thought was pretty neat ( and pointless as I can just ask for a price list :-) ) -- Graham Chiu Justin Smith New Mexico Natural Heritage Program University of New Mexico Department of Biology 167 Castetter Hall Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131 505-277-3822 x226 505-277-3844 (fax) [jthsmith--unm--edu]
