[REBOL] Re: Listener process

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 2-Sep-2003 20:33

Hi Ashley, AT> Any ideas on what the simplest way to implement a local listener process in AT> REBOL would be? I want to have an [encapped] script that can be started and AT> then "listens" for incoming requests from other [REBOL] scripts and passes AT> results back. I could certainly do this via files, but is there a nifty way AT> of doing it in-memory? AT> If the answer to this question is simply, "Look at Rugby / Async", then AT> that alone is worth knowing. ;) It isn't hard to create a process that listens on a port and returns data to clients when they connect, but Rugby is a brilliant absolute-no-brainer if you want to serve up functions for remote execution. Of course, that means including it in your code, but it's really terrific stuff. I'd say try Rugby first. If you decide not to use it, for whatever reason, you won't have wasted much time, and maybe gained some good insight in the process. -- Gregg
