[REBOL] [DEV] Re: dbms3.r 01

From: rgaither:triad:rr at: 13-Jan-2002 19:09

Hi Romano,
>I can't answer for Gabriele, but i can say why i need it: after writing 3 >different custom db for my programs, i feel the need of a "standard" rebol db >to store/retrieve data. I do not want to use an external db only for some >items.
Don't get me wrong - I need it as well. I just don't want to start with rows and columns and having to think about my REBOL data within the confines of a RDBMS. I am a database developer by day and a reboler by night but I know REBOL is capable of a very different kind of database.
>I was thinking to write my own but if Gabriele write it i'll use it (and it >will be better than mine, i'm sure)
I too have thought about it and can easily say either you or Gabriele could write one in REBOL better than I. Most on this list could I believe. :-)

Small and flexible are more important to me than fast.

I don't mind some complexity as long as the design is built to manage most of it internally. Just my opinons mind you. If a RDBMS is what Gabriele needs and wants to build I will be glad to help in whatever ways I can. I just want to open up the discussion a bit in other directions to see if there is any interest.
