[REBOL] search-for [ semaphores threads ]
From: robolinth:nodep:dds:nl at: 17-Mar-2002 21:14
Running into a issue where I would like to
have 1 rebol script wait for the other rebol script.
Or: script 1 calculates, script 2 needs to pick it up.
There are some ways to do this, probably the architecture
of the rebol/core does not allow this until now?
if anyone has a good alternative I would be happy to know.
I cant find any "wait-for" or threading inside rebol so that
leaves me with alternatives working on a unix machine.
There is only one problem! the scripts cannot/may not write to disk!
So that leaves me with:
* Using tcp/udp for threading
* Using IPC.
(dont know how to create those filesockets in rebol though :(
(Which brings me to an issue, Im not sure if the RT is working on it
but it would be so nice to create files and do a chmod on them...)
* Using a pipe.
( well did not see an example how this could work in rebol until now.)
* Last but now least, using a file as semaphore buffer.
(unfortunenaty this cannot be used!)
Any other suggestions are welcome!
