[REBOL] Solution: Launch Programs from REBOL/View Re:(3)

From: rebol:techscribe at: 27-Sep-2000 23:15

Hi Jochen, I previously had a similar idea regarding browse. I'm not quite sure (wanted to first check into it, but I haven't had time yet, however since you raised the issue ...) don't browsers support mime types, and can't exe mime types be used to launch an executable via the browser? Isn't that how browsers automate the process of unpacking executable archives (at least under MS Windows)? So - at least under windows - you should be able to send the browser the executable with an exe mime type, thereby instructing the browser to execute the application. I'm not sure that'll work ... Your second idea is cute ;-). That one didn't occur to me ...
