Elan's update-scripts.r

 [1/2] from: louisaturk::eudoramail::com at: 15-Mar-2001 22:03

Dear Elan, I bought your book, and am trying to learn REBOL. I am trying to update the scripts in your book by using update-scripts.r. I get the following error:
>> do %update-scripts.r
Script: "REBOL Book Script Updater" (10-May-2000) connecting to: ** User Error: Error. Target url: could not be retrieved. Server response : HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found. ** Where: write/binary %official-guide-update.xip read/binary do
Any idea what is wrong? Thanks, Louis PS I like your book.

Hi, thanks for buying the book. I hope you will find it helpful. Unfortunately I no longer have access to the site, where my script was originally hosted. You can reach me directly at my email address ([rebol--techscribe--com]). I do have some bug fixes for chapter 7 (errors were introduced during the formatting of the scripts and these errors migrated to the scripts as they exist on the CD ROM). I have a few more people waiting for these bug fixes and I'll send them out together. Also there is a (extremely low bandwidth, 1 email every 3 months approximately ;-) mailing list hosted on yahoo (formerly egroups) for the book. Please send me a private email and let me know if you prefer the chapter 7 scripts in MS Windows (zip) format, or gzip'd for Linux. If you want me to register you with the mailing list, please let me know that as well. mailto:[rebol--techscribe--com] Take Care, Elan Dr. Louis A. Turk wrote:
