[REBOL] Re: Rebol/view as a CGI app

From: mat:b:codeplay at: 10-Jan-2002 10:25

Hello Andrew, AM> It sounds like your rebol installation is bad. I think that Rebol/View AM> doesn't like being called %rebolcmd.exe. It's probably trying to install AM> itself when called by Xitami? No, that's now what I have done. The command line I quoted works; #!C:\Rebol\rebolcmd.exe --cgi -s This really IS Rebol/Command. The above also works if I use just plain rebol.exe, IE Rebol/Core. What does NOT work is if I do ANYTHING like the following; #!C:\Rebol\view\rebol.exe --cgi -s This just doesn't work. It hangs. Doesn't matter what switches I use either, I've tried dozens of combinations. I can run the exact path and my Rebol/View just goes straight into the console and doesn't try to install itself with the nasty pop up GUI thing. AM> If you want to run Rebol/View and Rebol/Core at once, consider doing what AM> I've done, which is to have one directory, like: AM> %/C/Rebol/ AM> with two subdirectories, inside it like: AM> %/C/Rebol/View/ AM> and: AM> %/C/Rebol/Core/ I just leave Rebol/Core and Rebol/Command in the %/C/Rebol/ dir. AM> Then put Rebol/Core in it's directory and Rebol/View in it's directory. AM> Then check them out to make sure that both work OK, then try them out again. They all work, I'm not a complete fool. :) AM> Be sure that the REBOL_HOME variable in your autoexec.bat file is changed AM> and that you've rebooted your system. The end result is two Rebol AM> executables which are at: AM> %/C/Rebol/Core/Rebol.exe AM> and: AM> %/C/Rebol/View/Rebol.exe AM> Then in the %/C/Rebol/ directory, you can store your Rebol scripts and AM> it's all tidy and so on. I didn't know about the REBOL_HOME var actually. Not that it appears to matter much. I have Rebol/view (pro) registered in the system to execute scripts without security etc. It works well. AM> I hope that helps! If not, please let me know, or email the list? The only solution I can think of is to work out what the hell is happening with Rebol/View when I'm calling it.
