[REBOL] REBOL IOS, many Q's. :)

From: edanaii:cox at: 28-Apr-2002 22:10

Greetings all, I just signed up for this list on Saturday, curious about the latest developments regarding REBOL IOS. I've known about REBOL for sometime, practically since the beginning and have always been curious about it, but my curiosity exploded when I heard about REBOL IOS. For some time, I've felt that the current generation of DOSes were not complete, that the needed to be expanded somehow. Naturally, I was excited when I read the article about "The Language that became an OS", I've always felt that DOS (any flavor) should be more robust and usable. So, now, I am intensely curious about this new development. What can anyone tell me about REBOL IOS. I know it integrates network computers together, but I'd like to know much more about this technology. Is it event driven, for example, can it detect events that occur on the host machine? Can communication pipe lines be set up between hosts, so the event occuring locally is communicated to a watching machine? And that's just for starters... :) What can anyone tell me? Inquiring minds, wanna know. -- Sincerely, | Ed Dana | Faith is believing what you know ain't so. Software Developer | -- Mark Twain 1Ghz Athlon Amiga |
