[REBOL] Re: Large Files and Binary Read

From: james:mustard at: 21-Oct-2002 22:07

;-) It seems strange that the read /direct/skip bug hasn't been addressed by RT (I noticed its been about for quite a while - at least a year!) considering the frequency with which random file accessed is used today - especially in the music / video / data scenes. Graham wrote:

This is only a home hobby sense - the data is from NASA's global observatory and gets quite large. Our workplace did look at using REBOL/ENCAP but the encap licensing terms were considered over-the-top and the technology was viewed as still beta quality. I personally like rebol but most of my colleagues view it as something akin to a cross between BASIC and PHP - opting instead for VB/C/VC++.

Hmm.. sounds good, although i'd probably pay by credit card.

Again, sounds good - although with /Pro and access to the shell/libraries its pretty easy to do most anything. James.
