[REBOL] Re: any chance of a core/pro?

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 23-May-2004 14:01

Hi Tom, TF> it would sure be nice to have call, encryption, etc, in TF> rebol/core. TF> is a core/pro version in the works? Why not? Do you want it in Core so it's free, or so you don't have the overhead of Command/View? If the latter, you can get the SDK and use the /Pro kernel; if the former, CALL *may* be included in future versions of Core (I don't know that RT has committed to it for sure though). From their docs: /Pro is built on top of /Base and includes: Shell - run external applications and commands Library - interface to external libraries (DLLs) FastCGI - fast processing of CGI Registry - access to the windows registry Encryption - Blowfish, Rijndael, AES, and more RSA Encryption - public key encryption DH/DSA Encryption - digital signatures and key exchange SysPort - exception trapping and more If you want all the commercial features in a free version, I guess my answer to "why not?" would be, "How will RT stay in business if they give everything away for free?" -- Gregg
