[REBOL] Re: Rugby-core syntax

From: koopmans:itr:ing:nl at: 11-Feb-2002 9:13

Some clarifications: - the tcp://:port-no is close to REBOLs syntax for opening a server port. This is especially important when you have multiple network interfaces in a machine, so that you can do tcp://:networkif-of-your-choice:portnumber So that's why it won't change. - No security refinements. Currently the security framework is completely independant of the real rugby core (rexec). It builds on top of that. The only thing in rugby that knows about sexec is the part tha builds stubs, but that may change as well. The upside of this that you can remove touchdown_* from the modules and the build script, and you have a smaller Rugby that still works. The downside is that you don't have /secure as a refinement but some extra functions (3). That is not to say that you may not add your own wrappers and submit them to me ;-) - Rugby seems somewhat slower, but that is not the compression (although that may be useless in some cases) but the http part. OTOH, http provides complete transparency by default, without any pain if you have a REBOL supported proxy/firewall. If I make all off these things configurable you end up with a Websphere, and that's *not* what I want. And yes, Rugby is my software, but you are free to clone and abuse. That's why the BSD license is there. --Maarten
