[REBOL] Rebol web servers Re:

From: jeff:rebol at: 6-Oct-2000 9:09

Howdy, Sharriff: Sorry for the delayed response. The webserver you're referring to went like this. Originally, Tyler and I built a version with the goal of making a working webserver in as few lines as possible. This was 20 lines, if I remember right. Bo, later, reworked the webserver to add REBOL cgi support. So the goal wasn't really robustness, though it looks like Ryan put it through its paces :-). A more robust webserver could be achieved using port multiplexing. A good example of this is Sterling Newton's http proxy script: Certainly you could add mime types and all sorts of stuff. There's also (Ingo Hohmann's) YaRWeS (Yet another rebol web server -- did I get that right?) that had a bunch more direct support for mime types and lots of other goodies as does Cal Dixon's REBOL webserver: (I can't seem to find Ingo's webserver. It's not on his site or on maybe it's not released anymore) As far as licensing goes, the script is public domain, and REBOL has it's own EULA (end user license agreement). So, that's my understanding of that stuff. Salutations-- -jeff
