[REBOL] Multithreading with Rebol

From: parki:whatevernot at: 14-Oct-2003 10:52

I took a quick look at Rugby, which is really pretty nifty. One thing though, which Rugby made clear - there seems to be no language support for threads in Rebol. If I am reading the Rugby docs correctly, the server side has to be implemented as cooperative multi-tasking, and that there is a polling loop (no wait notify semantics). This seems to be a bit of a hole, imho (unless there is a Rebol way?). I'm used to the threading support from Java, which is pretty powerful. Any thoughts/help appreciated. parki...
