[REBOL] - Old Hippy Needs Help With Clouds
From: jimbo:sc:starcat:ne:jp at: 4-Jun-2001 16:32
I wanna render a really cool earth with animated atmospheric cloud layers!
Ok... I know Lava (Errr.. REBOL) doesn't render worlds but it can help!
There's a wether site that posts fixed orbit sat. photos of the earth's cloud layer at
30 minute intervals. They're always posted to the same URL but DL in my browser ("Save
Image As") as different file names:
I want REBOL to:
1.. Grab the image off the site.
2.. Save it to Disk under supplied filename or specified sequence name.
3.. Wait exactly 30 minutes.
4.. Repeat until aborted.
I did some beta testing befor the initial pubilc release of REBOL so I'm pretty sure
this is doable but I haven't looked at it again since and feel a bit lost... Sorry if
this has already been discussed here. Is there some example code I could look at that
would do this from a URL like:
This has got to be what? Maybe 5 to 10 lines of code... The only problem is it's 5
or 10 lines of code I don't know and I looking for a quick fix.
I would be very very greatful for any input you could provide.
