[REBOL] Re: Alternate GUI

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 12-Jan-2004 21:15

Hi Matt, MM> ...if there is a way to use an alternate GUI designer, such as Visual MM> Basic or C++ and have it access some underlying REBOL functionality. I know MM> that using /view/pro you can access C++ classes and libraries, but what I MM> want to do is kindof backwards to that. Any input? No easy way at this point. I've seen the occasional request to have REBOL available as a DLL or static lib, which could be a cool way to do things, but I don't know if it makes sense for RT. Depending on your needs, you could write the UI in one tool and then use some IPC mechanism (e.g. sockets) to send data to a REBOL app for processing. In some cases that would work well. -- Gregg
