[REBOL] GPS website calcs

From: meekerdb::rain::org at: 23-Oct-2001 12:18

It seems that Rebol may be a solution to a programming problem I have. I'm not really a great programmer - I generally just do throw-away scientific progs for myself - and I'm new to Rebol, so I'm looking for someone to tell me whether or nor Rebol is the way to go. What I need to do is display GPS satellite positions in the sky at a given date/time/position overlaid on a graphic showing which ones will be masked. I think Rebol will simplify this if I can take advantage of websites that will do the satellite part of the calculation for me. For example, if I can get Rebol to send data into and then activate the 'Predict Satellites' and then capture and parse out the satellite positions from then all I'd have to do is overlay them on a view of the mask. Does Rebol have commands to use a website in this way? thnx, Brent Meeker There are two ways to write error-free programs. Only the third one works.
