[REBOL] Re: Send/attach

Well, that would help a bit if someone has that version. I am a bit
confused about what is available. The REBOL download page shows
126.96.36.199.1 as the Windows version of VIEW. On the page linked as "recent
beta version found here" the Windows version is called
UNFORTUNATELY, what I REALLY need to do what I want
to do (based on my understanding of the REBOL web site) is CORE 2.5.1 or
later on AIX. According to the web site, this doesn't even exist. I
have sent a feedback asking them if they could get the AIX version up to
In case y'all are curious, I have to tell you what I am up to because
it is SO COOL. Thanks to advice from all of you, I have a plan to have
a COBOL program on an RS6000 with AIX generate a custom REBOL script
containing a data entry layout. The COBOL program will call REBOL/Core
on AIX to email the script as an attachment. The recipient will
double-click the attachment and up will pop a customized data entry
screen for the data he is expected to send. He will fill in the form
and hit a button, and REBOL/View at his computer will send the collected
data back to another office, or perhaps FTP it to the RS6000 where its
arrival could be detected automatically by a cron job. The only part I
am unable to do is have REBOL on AIX send an attachment.
Every time I get some little thing like this created, I am able to put
REBOL on one more computer at the office--4 down, 496 to go.

I don't recall if anyone has answered your question.
