anamonitor 2.0.0 - load-thru

 [1/2] from: antonr::iinet::net::au at: 5-Mar-2003 15:44

load-thru uses load, which ignores the rebol header and just gives you the data. I think this could be so that the "main" script header is not destroyed. Ok, we started from the console, so the header was none anyway, but you can imagine doing a script that then loads some data file. You wouldn't want the calling script's header overwritten by the unimportant data file. I guess load-thru is more for data than scripts. do knows how to load, including the header, but it doesn't know how to load-thru the public cache. (I remember we used to have do-thru.) So if we do load-thru url then we are loading twice, but the first load has stripped the header. Anton.

Hi Anton, thanks for explanations

Do you think we need do-thru? The strange thing is we have launch-thru but not do-thru. Security? --- Ciao Romano
