Where can I get an example of a bot written in Cobol? This I have to see :-) Anyway, I have it figured out now. Since my scripts are not particularly time sensitive, my bot will just write it's results as a sql script into a specific directory, and a cron process will execute any scripts it finds there. That way I can update my database without the need for Rebol/command.
