[REBOL] Re: library

From: max:ordigraphe at: 20-Jul-2001 13:52

Hi, The problem is that you might have to hack code for it to work with another library of several functions (or even your own code base). Just a little bit messy and something you have to do everytime the library gets released. This is a problem which is often extremely hard to find in a language like rebol. in compiled language, the compiler would flag a message telling you that the word is already defined... I might well post the scripts themselves in rebol tech, Where they are posted, I don't really mind, they could also be scatered through the net with the framework site just linking to them. But then others might flush them at any time or the site goes down, he stops workling on the tool and deletes his account, we have no control over that, not even rebol. People can post their code at more than one place too. Its just that this library framework, is guaranteed to work together, to be documented and maybe even be supported, it is also less aimed at learning and more at using and working. Does any remember or knows about the AFCs? It looks a little bit like what I'd like to maintain. In time, the actual functions of different authors might become appended to a single file which contains several tools of the same vein. this is something I am trying to encourage, making the useage of these tools easier to handle for the whole community. what do you (and others) think? -Max
