do you mean Konstantin's dybase? It requires library component IIRC. But
that is not a much of a problem. I also remember Jeff producing link to
.... was it BerkeleyDB? The problem as I see it is - the set-up and
deployment cost. E.g. mySQL maybe overhead, but it accepts SQL syntax,
so switching to another DB may not influence your scripts so much, even
if there will surely be some work required.
I think that Rebol badly misses its small, native db format, which would
become standard for those, who don't want/can't use in-memory storage
and IOS-like one-record-per file storage is either not an option. I
think RebDB could be the answer, if open/skip would be fixed, but that
is another story. In the time being, I would stick with "standard" -
mySQL and would not support proprietary aproach/syntax, unless thinking
of such solution as being standard and long-term ...
