[REBOL] Re: How to cgi redirect? [OT]

From: rebologue::yahoo::com at: 24-Oct-2002 8:07

Hi Jason-- Since we've wandered a bit off topic, I'll respond to you directly off the list. If anyone's interested in following this thread a tiny bit further, email me directly. Back when I was doing a lot of web UI design at my job, I found the IRT.org resource very helpful for these types of questions: http://developer.irt.org/script/script.htm The insideDHTML article that Will pointed out also looks like a good validation of the redirection technique. If you're able to throw CGI at it, a server-side redirect is the best technique. I think the W3C even recommends that approach. REBOL could really use a standard (or quasi-standard) set of CGI functions to handle these basic things. Over the past 2 years, I've seen countless questions on this list about POST/GET data, redirection, url encoding, etc. This is entry-level CGI functionality!! I bet if 3 or 4 generous REBOL CGI users offer, we could arrive at a good core set. I'm sure RebolForces (or someone) would love to host this package. Please let's resolve some of these things once and for all. Cheers, Ed --- Jason Cunliffe wrote:
