Thinking caps please. Has anyone written their own scheme from scratch and plugged it into system/schemes? I've been looking at the code for the build-in schemes and I would like to know how it all hangs together, and how one can create their own schemes for use by a client or a server. I've a rough idea, but it would be great if someone could explain it in a top down fashion. Just dreaming of programs supported by downloadable protocols (bootstrapped by http :) ). Thanks in advance. Brett.

just look at Kevin's email subjected to POP3 TOP topic .... He included Jeff's special version of POP3 protocol in his message ... -pekr- Brett Handley wrote:

Yes that is what got me started on this. Damned useful bit of code too (I've been hanging out for that functionality for some time). But it is only half the equation I think. How/when is the handler called? What needs to be set? What functions are part of the scheme framework and what are specific to the protocol? Can someone draw it in UML (probably another topic in itself)? Thanks Brett.

Hi Brett, Another shorter protocol that might be useful to learn from is the http://www.rebol.org/web/dict.r Implements the dict protocol as per RFC2229 Also these http and ftp protocols might be interesting too, find at http://www.rebol.org/unsupported/ Cheers, Allen K

Thanks for those Allen. Will have a look. Brett.

Also the nntp.r file that includes the nntp protocol should be very useful. Elan Allen Kamp wrote:
