p2p search engine (not rebol)

 [1/2] from: chaz::innocent::com at: 13-Nov-2001 13:01 So what is HyperBee? HyperBee is an attempt to crawl the web faster and cheaper than ever thought possible. As the web continues to grow, current search engines will have a more difficult time keeping their indexes up-to-date. Most search engines today index less than 40% of the entire web! HyperBee is a peer-to-peer network that looks to solve the problems that challenge today's search engines. The idea is simple. It's screensaver that runs while you're away from your computer, helping us crawl the web faster than any other search engine can, because we crawl it with your help along with the help of many others! ************************ So, what's the best way to do a screensaver in REBOL?

Hi Chaz, << So, what's the best way to do a screensaver in REBOL? >> That would be OS dependent. Under Windows (if memory serves) you need to handle the following: Parse command line for -c|/c|c (configure) and -s|/s|s (save) switches. Make window style (maximized, no title bar, no border). I think you need string table resource with an item ID of 1 that starts with "SCRNSAVE" and then has the title you want to show in the Win setup dialog. Makes a few (API) calls when you start up. Shut down when you get a mouse or keyboard event. Change the EXE extension to SCR. I can't rememer what you have to do if they have a password set. --Gregg
