Hello, I'm completely new to Rebol. I'd like to use it to create a simple web content management system. Plus maybe some simple graphic games. My question is: Am I right in my assumption that REBOL/View is exactly the same thing as REBOL/Core with some GUI stuff added? Can I develop my application under REBOL/View on Win98 and then run it as CGI under REBOL/Core on Linux? From my understanding, REBOL/View does not support sound. Why does it contain the "sound" object then? Can you suggest some practical Rebol tutorials apart from http://www.rebol.com/docs/core23/ ? Also, I see unusually large amount of people from Czech Republic on this list. What is the reason? Are there any Czech resources/tutorials about REBOL? I could say that I'm interested in computer stuff happening in our country but never heard about REBOL before this week. -- Frantisek Fuka (yes, that IS my real name) (and it's pronounced "Fran-tjee-shek Foo-kah") ---------------------------------------------------- My E-mail: [fuka--fuxoft--cz] My Homepage: http://www.fuxoft.cz My ICQ: 2745855

Hi Frantisek, Welcome to Rebol -- Let me attempt your first three questions.
> Am I right in my assumption that REBOL/View is exactly the > same thing as REBOL/Core with some GUI stuff added?
Basically yes. Any script written for /Core should work on /View. There are minor incompatibilities (as there always is in evolving software) but not much.
> Can I develop my > application under REBOL/View on Win98 and then run it as CGI under > REBOL/Core on Linux?
In theory yes. In practice several people have had trouble using /View as a CGI processor. If you develop on Win98 /Core you should have no problems running that on a Linux /Core -- and vice versa.
> From my understanding, REBOL/View does not support sound. Why does it > contain the "sound" object then?
View/Pro includes sound. But you pay for that. It is the same distribtion as the free /View but with a licence key to unlock extra goodies. Try: open: sound:// in /View and you'll get the message:
> Feature not available in this REBOL
Pay money. Get key. Lose the message. Free sound is a regular request for /View. There have been some suggestions on this list recently the Rebol Tech might be thinking about it. hth Sunanda

That should be: open sound:// As below, open: sound:// will change the value of the word 'open from the built-in open function to the url sound:// If you do this, you can break a lot of code very quickly, because many file and network functions rely on 'open. Anton.
