[REBOL] Re: article

From: bry:itnisk at: 27-Aug-2003 21:09

the quite maddening can be was in reference to rebol as a language which for no rational reason sometimes reminds me of someone speaking English, but being used to a language with different grammatical rules. Yeah I thought about smiling when I sent off the article, but by then it was too late. Glad you liked it, about the registry details it's also possible to use DDE from an asynchronous pluggable protocol by using the proper DDE registry settings. Some of the protocols in the registry have examples of this. One of the things I was hoping was that some of the people who are better at rebol than I am, who're also interested in expanding Rebol in Windows, would see this as a possible way of doing it, and come with some cool ideas. Since an Asynchronous Pluggable protocol can be used anywhere that a link can be used that means that one can have a reb:// link in a Microsoft Office document, in an Open Office document, in a shortcut, and in various web technologies that understand linking. Another thing I've been playing with is the possibility of using asynchronous protocols to communicate between different programming environments, in my case between Rebol and Erlang. The syntax I've been using is reb:/// and erl:/// where the space in between the second and the third / can be used as a holder for metadata, for example a link reb://subject=convers3/code follows... sockets might be better for that of course, but the protocol might be a good way to start a conversation between the two environments. Anyway glad that you found parts of the article interesting.
