Did someone find the Missing code accompanying this past "REBOL Bots" a

 [1/3] from: gerardcote:sympatico:ca at: 23-Aug-2002 10:48

Hi Rebol-list, As I was referenced this article ( See below for the reference) to introduce a friend to REBOL Bots, I found that some code is missing or broken. In particular the listings 2, 3 and 4 are missing or not complete. ========== Article's description and link taken from the old WebTechniques Web site ============== Script Junkie Employing syntax that's natural for humans and robots alike, this month Carl Sassenrath, the creator of REBOL, shows us how and why this language was made for messaging. =========================================================================== Is there anybody who can help with to find or replace these old listings code ? May be someone of you have them filed on its hard disk or archived them ... Who knows! Note that I also sent my friend a memo advising that some code is flawed. In fact I pointed him directly at the listing # 6. To counterbalance my fault, I also pointed him to the study of many other interesting articles discussing real interesting work actually done with REBOL like wikis, Web sites and documentation generators, etc... Just to be fair with some of you that could be interested readers, I also point you one interesting - and functional - demo that Carl provided in the discussed article above. (Interested readers, See listing 6). As I can recall, recently there was a post about embedding REBOL code into email messages for execution by a REBOL email server. This was precisely the subject of this "REBOL Bot" article listing #6. Really Hope this can be of some interest or usefulness to some ML readers. I particularly found the subject very interesting for demoing REBOL capabilities to newbies that are also Small Business Managers but I find it a great inconvenience I didn't remember the code was broken before I sent it to my friend. Actually I hope that someone on the ML can help me to find these old missing scripts and/or write new scripts for the listings 2, 3 and 4 of the articles. Working alone I am currently able to complete the listing # 2 but I can't yet write the Web-link-rules of the listing # 3 (Web sniffing Bot) or the broken/missing code of the Web Server Agent of the Listing # 4. I began studying some related library scripts and Web server code but it is overkill for me at this moment... Regards, Gerard

Hi, Gerard, Partial solution below... Gerard Cote wrote:

Let me suggest that you do a "View Source" on the offending pages (the ones with the listings). It appears that Listing Tree can for example can be pulled out of the source html. AFAICT, the problem is that the script itself contains html tags (it writes a web page as output) and whoever put these listings on the NA web site didn't properly escape the tags, thus confusing the rendering process. That may not fix everything, but you'll get more that way than you can read via your browser's rendered display. HTH! -jn-

======================= Thanks for the rescue Joel, Why did'nt I think about it for my own use when I regularly suggest this way of doing things to many customers and friends. Human memory is sometimes the best man friend but it sure helps when there is more than a single one to remember things... I will promptly see between the SOURCE lines for myself ... Thanks again Joel. Gerard
