[REBOL] Solution: Launch Programs from REBOL/View Re:(2)
From: jsc:dataheaven at: 28-Sep-2000 7:57
My first Idea was to use the "browse" function:
you can say:
and if your system is properly configured a web-browser will pop-up.
Under UN*X REBOL/View is using netscape.
So netscape will be startetd by following command triggered through
/usr/local/bin/netscape -remote "openURL(http://www.rebol.com, new-window)"
but if you use browse _this_ way:
browse "myapp par1 par2 par3"
it will try following:
/usr/local/bin/netscape -remote "openURL(myapp par1 par2 par3, new-window)"
What we would have to do, is to replace netscape by a simple shell-script
that cuts out the URL part of the command args and then launches the
Some minutes ago I'd another Idea that enables us to run programs with all
REBOL-releases. (I don't no why nobody else had the idea)
In the REBOL-Library lies a cute little script namely "little-bell.r"
This script implements a little telnet-client. By using this code we are able
to launch programs on all computers that have telnet access!!!
