Newbie Q: View%Core

Hi, Sorry for this naive question : Is View entirely written in Core (i.e can we load View in Rebol/Core)? Thx, Bruno.

No. View is a seperate program giving you all of Core plus gfx-support. The VID part of View, (ie, the GUI support), is entirely written in View though, it being a normal REBOL dialect. (Hmmm. I wonder if VID will be missing from the cut-down version of View when it's released?) -- Carl Read

CR> -- CR> Carl Read I think that both View and Core are written in C (there are some of the native functions in View that are not in Core) but a lot of View stuff is written in pure Rebol. I suppose, that if there will be somethink like View/Base it will be without VID (so we can make our own one:) On the other side I think it will be more usefull for encap users then for me.

Hi Carl and Oldes and the list, Just some notes: I hear very often basic misunderstanding that lot of people are thinking that View = VID. Here is my POV: Rebol/View consists of the main /Core kernel(memory management, interpreter, all the network stuff...) + /View graphic kernel(compositing engine, effect pipeline, event handling) which both are written in C language. Over that low-level stuff there is the whole system object(mezzanine functions, schemes, contexts,VID etc.) written in Rebol language. You can see guts/change of everything at this level. So as Oldes said VID is just a piece of rebol code. Everyone could write its own "VID" but you cannot change the things at the C level. regards Cyphre

AFAIK it is written in core; it is a dialect. However, since source code is not available, to use it you will have to download Rebol/View http://www.rebol.com/view-form.html Louis

Nope, View is written in C, with some functions written in Core. VID however is entirely written in Core, and the source will be provided with the new SDKs. --Graham

Thanks for correcting my ignorance, Graham. I read somewhere that vid is written in core, and assumed that view was also. Louis At 05:53 PM 11/9/2002 +1300, you wrote:
