[REBOL] Re: dbase files under rebol ???

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 17-Oct-2003 10:36

Hi Petr, PK> well, it always starts the easy way and complicates later. All I wanted PK> to say is - that any such stuff without support for indexing, updating PK> databases, sharing/locking, is not practically of much use. And once you PK> decide to reimplement CA-Clipper of FoxPro in Rebol not even having PK> open/skip working, let me know, it will be at least interesting to PK> watch :-) Yes, certain things complicate matters (SKIP being one of my main deterrents on things like this), but I used to use a dBase engine--under VB1--that was written entirely in pure VB and it worked extremely well, with support for indexes, memos, etc.. Of course, I wasn't going against 50M DBs... :) Without SKIP working properly, it would be a real PAIN just because of how you'd have to make it work. -- Gregg
