[REBOL] Re: [Newbie]: Rebol script output to Windows stdout

As far as I know, REBOL's cross-platform-ness extends to console sessions in a very annoying way -- it doesn't support them on any platform. Even trying sneaky windows-only things like: write %/con "hello console!" doesn't seem to work. One work around -- assuming you are happy to wait to the end of the REBOL session to see the console messages: write to a temporary file and then type that. Like this: c:\REBOL\Rebol.exe helloworld.r -c type output.txt Script is: REBOL [ Title: "Hello world script" File: %helloworld Date: 07/01/2004 Purpose: {PRINT "Hello world to console.} Note: { None } ] echo %output.txt print ["hello world"] quit Sunanda
