Rebol Programmer's Guide - Chapter 6 - Rebol for Geeks

 [1/1] from: pwawood::gmail::com at: 11-Oct-2008 8:56

At last, the electronic pre-release of Chapter 6 of the translation of Olivier Auverlot's "Rebol - Guide du Programmer" ( ) is now available at ( ) for EUR 2.99. This chapter starts with a short overview of how to configure and manage Rebol/View desktops to provide a "virtual office". It moves quickly into serious programming topics in a Unix environment covering console data display, handling keystrokes, command line arguments, file access rights, shell access, pipes, sockets, Unix signals and dynamic library calls. A thorough introduction to RebDB rounds out the chapter. The translation of chapter seven, the final chapter, is almost complete and should be pre-released within a couple of weeks. Finally, I hope that the completely translated book will be published in another three to four weeks. At that time, the pre-releases will be removed from The chapters that have previously been released are: Chapter 1 - Discover Rebol in an Hour ( ) Chapter 2 - The Rebol Language ( ) Chapter 3 - GUI, graphics and sound ( ) Chapter 4 - Networking and the Internet ( ) Chapter 5 - Rebol for Pros ( ) Regards Peter
