[REBOL] Re: piping email into an external app from rebol

Hi John, JU> I'm trying to loop around in Rebol, downloading all the mail in a pop-box JU> and piping each one through an existing C executable...

It depends on your C program I guess. If you redirect the output in the shell, you can just use PRINT in REBOL and the output will go there. Will that work for you? There were a few messages here recently on piping that should contain some good hints as well. -- Gregg
