[ALLY] REBOL/View 1.0 Ships!

 [1/19] from: carl::rebol::com at: 6-Apr-2001 20:14


We did it. Finally. Check out http://www.rebol.com It's a free download, and it allows FREE REDISTRIBUTION! That's right, you can put it on your web site, put it into a CD-ROM, share it with friends via floppy, beam it over wireless, whatever. Also note that the Windows and Linux versions are actually View/Pro. We are working to get credit card processing up and running so we can start selling licenses and send you the key that unlocks the power of View/Pro. And, look for View 1.1 coming soon... it will include the REBOL/View Desktop. Much more planned for the Web site for docs and demos... and also look for the return of the REB soon -- a world-wide distributed operating system (WWDOS? Hmmm.) If you yet haven't noticed, REBOL's back! -Carl

Having trouble with the Amiga version. It won't install. I have the executable in the data:view/ directory and it's called 'view'. I try to install it to that location as well as other locations like RAM: and work: and I always get the same message: Failed to install file data:view/rebol What am I missing? -Bo

Carl: Just downloaded View. Looks good. Congratulations!! Noticed that easy-vid demo is not looking in correct directory for images. Will investigate further. -Larry

Good job ! forever [prin "thanks, "] For sure i'll buy the license when it'll be ready to buy. Just a question : will the licence key bought for View/Pro 1 unlock the 1.1 too ? I also have to say that we (or, at least me) need documentation about shell, crypto and library access functions. I'm sure you are allready working on that, but it have to be sayed because those of us who haven't bought /Command have no information about those points. Renaud

Hi Bo! just one question - do you still work for RT? I noticed your consultant work related email some week or two ago here, and now you are not posting from @rebol.com, and you are asking questions as if you would not be Rebol QA anymore??? Thanks, -pekr-

Hi, Congratulations on the release, look forward using it with the script I wrote for Rebol/Core... Any chance for a WindowsCE/PocketPC version of Rebol/View ? The PDA market would really benefits from a good generic SDK and scripting tools like Rebol/Core + Rebol/View ? Best, Chris

I got the exact same problem. The solution is to start it from the CLI, not the icon. Then it installs okay, and when started from the icon the next time you'll go straight to the Console. (I betcha the problem is to do with the guff they've put in the icon's tool-types.:) Well, I hope that helps... -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]

Chris, I do agree that a version of REBOL/View for WindowsCE would be a great benifit to the PDA market. I just wish that I could get REBOL/Core 2.5 to run on my HP 620LX WindowsCE version 2.0. Have you had any sucess in this area ? Cheers colinb

Is it just me, or is view now become so slow and sluggish that's it's damn close to useless, even on 060 machine? I click a button and sometimres it takes 15-20 seconds before anything happens, can hardly play rebtris due to lag in response... and here I thought rebol was supposed to be flexible and efficient? Gah... :Ţ -- kolla

No, it's not just you. You should try it on a 50Mhz 030. (: However, gradient backdrops can cause some sluggishness if they're behind a lot of other stuff. Try removing the ones in Rebtris and see what difference it makes. (Assuming you can edit it that is - I tried to a while back and it wasn't easy. I think there's checks in the code for such tampering.:) Also, find the demo100.r script, (which is the "demo" you run from the console - it'll be in your public/www.rebol.com/view/ directory), and comment out the box animation effects. ie this bit... view layout [ backdrop effect [gradient 0x1 100.100.100 0.0.0] style button button 200 box 100x100 "Temporary Demos" ; rate 10 effect first effs feel [ ; engage: func [f a e][ ; if a = 'down [quit] ; if a = 'time [ ; effs: next effs ; if tail? effs [effs: head effs] ; f/effect: first effs ; show f ; ] ; ] ; ] pad 84 button 100 "REBOL.com" [browse http://www.rebol.com] Your should see the script's buttons spring to life after that. Don't run it when you're online though, as REBOL might just download the original again. Flashturbation is the term for excessive use of Flash on websites. I wonder what the equivalent word for excessive use of effects in View will be? (; -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]

Hi Colin I've been using Rebol/Core 2.5 on my E-125 (mips) PocketPC since it's release. And I just installed Rebol/Core 2.5 on my HP680 Jornada (SH3) and it's working perfectly AFAIK. Have you downloaded the correct build for your SH3 device ? The file should be core151.zip from the download area... feel free to contact me regarding this issue. Best, Chris

Hello Carl, and congratulations. I'm running the BeOS (x86) version of Rebol/View and it's not exactly stable. The interface of the VID scripts locks most of the time and I have to close rebol and start again. I'm tunning it in a Dual PIII 733, so it may be SMP- related. What about a Pro version for BeOS? Will that be available? Thanks. -Bruno -- Bruno G.

Hi Colin, Have you tried increasing Program Memory ? as opposed to Storage Memory. When I run Rebol, it requires around 3mb on my device ! Best, Chris
