[REBOL] Re: Wildman project - PS3?

Hi Greg, gsina> Thanks for your reply Gregg, always it is awkward making a gsina> first post on a well established and specialist forum. No need to be shy or awkward here, this is probably the friendliest community I've ever been a part of. gsina> The REBOL header is not a bad basis for a file system (or an gsina> XML version of it). That including a mandatory ID along with a gsina> Plain English title (a little like URL names and turples), gsina> might not be a bad move. Agreed. File systems are including more and more metadata themselves as well, so I think it's important to consider how people use file systems today, as opposed to 20 years ago. Also, because REBOL is all about semantic information exchange, you can consider files to be a type of persistent "message"; the idea being that messages are processed and dispatched based on header information, and you could do the same thing with files. -- Gregg
