[REBOL] Re: REBOL [] Packages announcement and competition

From: gerardcote:sympatico:ca at: 20-Feb-2004 11:22

Hi Sunanda, as you told the downloader did its job very well even under Core 2.3 and View 1.2.1 running Win 98 while the demo ran only under View. Under Core no real file seems to be saved on disk but the downloader script worked since I got this screen indicating a try to exec the DEMO :
>> do/args"lds-demo1-package.r"
connecting to: Script: "Library data services: Download package files" (16-Feb-2004) ** Script Error: view? has no value. ** Where: if view? [ lds-styles: stylize [ info: info black 172.200.234 font-size 11 h1: text black 172.200.234 font-size 15 h2: text black 172.200.234 font-size 13 p: text black 172.200.234 font-size 13 notes: text-list black 100.200.200 font-size 13 hr: box 600x2 blue ] ] lds-dp: make
>> list-dir
rebol.exe ropus.r under View I got the ending message "The package is fully downloaded" and all files were downloaded into the current DIR as I tried it first and then it was OK too when dumped into a second newly created folder. The old Select File requester appeared (View 1.2.1) and I then asked myself how to create a new folder since no new button appeared and I mustr admit I never found how-to (simply type the new name and SELECT it as for any other file to select just don't do the job - with or without the trailing /)... While the download was occuring, I also attempted to review the names of files that had to be downloaded but I could no more scroll the list - can it be enhanced (unlocked) or is View freezing the displayed faces when it works downloading files? The Online Help goes browsing the web site and appropriately displays the needed HELP info. Finally the DEMO script runs first class. Great work guys ! Congratulations for all your contributive efforts ... I really appreciate the resulting products set !!! Regards, Gerard P.S. For the contest I must admit I would have not guessed right in 3 of 4 cases and even then I already saw Andrew's snapshot before do if I want to play fair I got 0 of 4 cases ;-)
