Thanks for the kind comment, Dave... The scripts that search our booklist
(we sell almost a thousand different titles now) were written in REBOL. The
entire underlying e-commerce system that allows a customer to click on any
title showing on the site on any page (and it's a dynamic site with the
possibility of hundreds of pages) is PURE unadulterated REBOL. The same
system, by the way, also handles fulfillment for the REBOLpress books, etc.
Kinda proud of it<g> and it's generated a lot of good orders for us,
operating flawlessly since July of last year. REBOL is just plain EASY to
develop powerful web applications in.
You may have noticed the very first line of the http://abooks.com site, the
one welcoming visitors and showing their IP number, etc. Here's the script
for that tasty little enhancement:
print "Content-Type: text/plain^/"
print "<font face='ARIAL' size='-2'>"
print ["Thank you for visiting this page from<br>IP: "
ip "- - - Name: " read join dns:// ip]
print [<br>" on"
now/date "at" now/time "our time (U.S. Eastern)."]
Long live the REBOLution!
