[REBOL] Re: Multi-threading?

From: kimm2:mcmaster:ca at: 2-Jul-2002 1:32

Hey Greg, thanks for the reply. <<Maarten Koopmans has written a lightweight threading engine for use in Rugby, which does cooperative multithreading, and I have built something similar myself.>> I'll take a look into Rugby. <<< If a rebol script checked my inbox for messages and replied to those that were on my "friends" list it would read and reply one at a time. Is it possible to concurrently check multiple emails? >>> <<In this example, given that the volume will probably be very low, what does it gain you?>> You're right in that for my personal mail, I shouldn't have an issue. However, what if such a solution were to be used for corporation or even as a service to the mass market were potentially hundreds of emails are being sent per minute? Matt
