[ALLY] Retroweb

 [1/2] from: gchiu::compkarori::co::nz at: 16-Apr-2001 10:01

I was wondering how useful it would be to try Rebol's VID for browsing purposes to communicate with a web server. I modified my home page to contain some VID, and the following displays it. To be useful, what I really require is a VID table superior to html tables, that allows me to manipulate large amounts of data - eg sort on columns, search on columns etc without downloading the data each time. A reblet as it were. Is such a beast available or in the making??

Forgot to mention that the only "dynamic" part of the page is the date stamp which is generated by the web server, and so is in local New Zealand time. -- Graham Chiu
