[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)
From: larry:ecotope at: 4-Jun-2001 19:25
I tried the plug-in web page. The plug-in was downloaded into the IE plug-in
dir and registered in the registry. After rebooting Win98 (version 4.10
build 1998), the plug-in works as follows using IE 5 (version
1) When I go with the browser to a .r file on your website or on my own
rebsite, View runs the script including downloads called for in the script
2) There is no blank screen, the View script just pops up over (or partially
over) the browser window, but if I close the View script window, the browser
window does not refresh. Using the back button on the browser restores the
original browser window. The browser seems hung until I use the back button.
3) If I close the browser window just after the script window comes up,
everything works in the same fashion as if the script had been executed by
4) If I move the script window after it pops up it leaves a trail of script
window images on the browser window, this may be a problem with the video
driver on my machine.

Subject: [REBOL] REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha)
This plugin allows you to run REBOL scripts by simply
clicking on Web links. It does not take over the browser
or its window, but will run the script and open a REBOL
window if that is part of the script.
The plugin includes a copy of REBOL/View, which will be
installed if you do not already have View.
This is an alpha test. We have done limited testing
of it for Windows IE and Netscape. If you want to try it
as an Alpha test, browse this link:
This test is for Windows only... at this time.
Many thanks to both Sterling and Jeff for the IE and
Netscape code gymnastics to get this running.
