[REBOL] Re: Other R extensions

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 26-Mar-2001 13:52

Using filename extensions to represent filetypes to the OS is lame anyway IMO. Extension name clashes are inevitable - especially with the archaic 3-char convention. And these filename extensions are listed as if MS Windows is the only OS out there. Geez. It's not like extensions are registered like URLs or something; they really aren't much more than a free-form description. .R represents REBOL scripts on my machine.

You can replace the file types entry in Windoze so that .r run Rebol instead :-) Cheers Phil ----- Original Message ----- From: "Paul Tretter" <[ptretter--norcom2000--com]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Saturday, March 24, 2001 9:58 AM Subject: [REBOL] Other R extensions

Mail Resource File's. Got that from this link which doesn't list it for REBOL scripts
