[ALLY] Re: [REBOL] About View

From: bo:rebol at: 28-Mar-2001 17:20

Phil, You can think of Link as View with the addition of API functions for connecting to and synchronizing with REBOL/Serve. Otherwise, they should be identical. This is a simplified explanation, but may help to draw a picture (using View and Link's drawing functions, of course). ;-) Oh, also Link has a built-in desktop while View will likely not (except by way of an external script). -Bo On 29-Mar-2001/8:00:57+8:00, [philb--upnaway--com] wrote:
