[REBOL] Re: [roadmap] to be found on ...

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 15-Jul-2004 10:36

Hi bry, bic> ...would require REBOL to have some form of capability bic> constraints, tougher than the current system. E has some very cool concepts in it (promise-based computing, right?), but Volker beat me to the punch on why REBOL may not need it so much. By not exposing the base language, and all its power, we create those constraints ourselves. What we need are examples and docs on best practices to avoid security holes. e.g. is CONSTRUCT always safe to use, is there any way to use DO or LOAD safely when dealing with untrusted data, how best to use SECURE, stuff like that. -- Gregg
