update on library discussion... :-)

 [1/1] from: moliad::aei::ca at: 11-Nov-2003 4:43

hi all, I said I'd reply by sunday, well, 3 days of the flu and fighting a worm attacking my computer (windows patches, anti virus software install and shortly a firwall), I'm just now finding the time to check the rebol mailing list. what's cool is that there has been discussion and even a separate thread which has provided some code. This just confirms that there is interest. I am currently preparing an extensive report/analysis/whitepaper on the topic itself, based on the posts(and private mails) which I have read in the last week. It will go into detail of different topics regarding pretty much what everyone said, with more comments from me, and hopefully a renewal on the discussion. I'll post this on the steel site (since that's what its for ;-). This, will be available shortly, I'll send a mail with a link when it is ready. This document will also contain the preliminary specs of the tool and library styleguide I have so far implemented along with a full list of the things which are already available in the current version 0.2.0. here is the current big picture within the document (subject to change): -What kind of library module are we talking about? -Relevance of a library/module system & loader within rebol -Pros and Cons -Specification of such a system -Distributions/dependencies/linking -RT's support/blessing/involvement in the effort (if any?). Hope this keeps the interest! Serving the community (or at least, a part of it ;-) -MAx --------------- steel project coordinator --------------- PS: phil beven's mailreader.r application rocks!... that's what I'm now using instead of outlook. It lacks a few things, but its free of bloat. :-)
