[REBOL] Re: REBOL and database stuff

From: mat:plothatching at: 31-Mar-2003 8:33

Hello Tim, TJ> Using rebol with mysql has given me better performance than "C" TJ> with a compiled in DBMS. Talking about hundreds of thousands TJ> of records.... Absolutely, I'm sure it's just something I'm doing wrong. One of the factors may be that I have MySQL on the slowest hard drive known to man. :) TJ> I've put together a couple of text-based dbms with rebol and TJ> after a small learning curve with mysql - I wouldn't go back TJ> to them. Yep. Which is what makes me think that some sort of helper functions between the raw SQL queries and your code would be quite nice. TJ> And from what DocKimbel has told me, the PostreSQL driver TJ> gives even faster performance. Thanks for that. I've installed MySQL and it works though, so I'm reluctant to fix things that aint broke. My performance is pretty bad. The server is no mean machine to be sure and it's not on the same machine as the REBOL, but they're on the same network. Quite odd. I guess I'll shift the REBOL to run on the same machine and that ought to help. Regards, Mat Bettinson - +44-(0)20-83401514.
