[REBOL] Re: RATE experiment...

From: greggirwin:starband at: 30-Aug-2001 10:04

Hi Cyphre, OK, I just tested on my machine (P900, Win2K) and setting the slider to max (40), I get 25 fps in all cases, setting it to min (0), I get 50 fps. << I'm not WIN api expert but if /View behaves on Mac with the same limtation it should be a problem of Rebol/View itself, not OS. >> I don't know anything about MacOS to know if it might have the same issue, or if REBOL's implementation is similar for both. << Furthemore, how can I explain myself that in "tracking all events" mode I'm able to achieve many times higher rates?? >> It's possible that they have an internal message pump that feeds things through when tracking all events. If that's so then they could be firing off events as Windows messages come in, rather than waiting on a callback from the Windows Timer they've created. Just a guess though. I'm still in the crawling stage with REBOL so I don't have any idea how the feel stuff might work. --Gregg
