[REBOL] Re: Calling rebol under a non cmd.exe shell in windows.

From: gregg:pointillistic at: 6-Jan-2010 12:12

Hi Mårten, MH> I have some shell scripts that I use under bash but run under cygwin MH> or msys on windows (and under Linux and OS X) ... MH> to make it work. This will of course not run under any other OS unless MH> I check for it. While it would be great if REBOL could hide every detail of cross-platform portability, system calls and library interfaces can't always work that way. I usually just put these things in wrappers, so only one part of the code has to know about it. MH> Is there any particular reason why this crashes with "REBOL System MH> Error #1405" when called directly under those shells? I think this is due to R3 being alpha, and not many people having tested the shell interface. Submit the bug to CureCode and it will get on RTs radar. -- Gregg
