How many times should I repeat that? /Command = CGI. What do we want is - Apache module. If it is not like that, the world will not accept it. I tried to convince three of my friends and the answer was clear - CGI s... :-) ... that's probably reality and we have no guns to make them think in other way .... Well, I use CGI as I don't use Rebol for some heavy stuff yet. What's more, maybe the solution is coming: 1) Apache module is somehow postponed. But according to info from RT marketing department (and I hope I am not telling secrets here), Rebol/Apache is still being regarded strategic product, although other things have priority nowadays (/Express) 2) DocKimbel created mySQL scheme (protocol) script, which is currently available to /Express testers. I haven't tried it myself yet, but it surely would be interesting to know the speed in comparison to PHP Apache module, as a) we have to use it in CGI mode b) the script encoding routines are written in Rebol .... 3) Of course PHP Apache module solution = 0 USD, while Rebol/Command under Linux costs some 299 USD (not to mention other Unixes). And it even doesn't support mySQL directly, nor ODBC, - you have to use /Library component and wrapper script Jeff created and posted to the list ... If not /Library, then at least /Shell should become part of /Core ... for free :-) Well, /Shell is so basic functionality, - I can't help myself ... ;-) -pekr-
