[REBOL] REBOL stand-alone applications? Re:

Well, with /View, here is how you can make a "stand-alone" app for the
1. give the script the #! /boot/home/config/bin/rebol shebang
2. make the script executable.
3. give the script a nice icon.
4. use PackageBuilder to have the following installed when the end user
double-clicks on the .pkg file...
executable script in /install_folder
executable script in /boot/home/config/bin/
rebol in /boot/home/config/bin/
This installs the /View rebol binary alongside the executable rebol script in
the bin/ directory. Now the script is executable from the commandline (just
type the name of the script) or the script is executable like other applications
in that you can double-click on its icon to launch it.
I'm sure something similar can be accomplished on other platforms.
Of course, it's not within the license to install /View for the end user. This is
how it COULD be done.
