View and the Internet

I doubt it. :) As I said, the script is not executed on the server. The client downloads the script from the server, then runs it. If it crashes on the client, the server doesn't care. The server doesn't have to have rebol running to serve some text files. But I am not sure about your setup. Your machine is not also the server is it? Is the cgi-bin directory the only directory accessible by the outside world? I doubt that, but I don't know. In any case, putting your scripts in cgi-bin makes it more likely that they will be executed server-side ! :) (Although, there are a few other things you have to set up first).

Ryan: I have placed the Rebodex files in the CGI-BIN but am unable to call the file from the Internet. How do I call such a script, or actually -how do I make the script accessible to the Internet user? John At 12:39 PM 9/6/2001 -0700, you wrote:

You need to put it where you keep your other html files. It doesn't need to go in cgi-bin; it is not a server-side script. The client simply reads the file as if it was any other document. If the client then chooses to execute it is a matter of choice. I am assuming you are ftp'ing your file up to your website. Just send it where your index.html is, for starters. Then, assuming you access your site with: http://www.yoursite.com/blah/index.html Just open a rebol console and type: do http://www.yoursite.com/blah/yourscript.r

Anton: This could open up a security hole for my company. I assume there is no problem with placing REBODEX and NAMES.R in the cgi-bin? //JOHN At 09:32 PM 9/7/2001 +1000, you wrote:

Can applications written for View (Like Rebodex) be served over the Internet, in other words could an application such as Rebodex be accessed via the Internet..? John

Absolutely. View desktop is made to do just that. --Ryan John Harbaugh wrote:
