New Schemes - WIP
More progress has made so that we now have partially working dns://, daytime://, pop3://, smtp://, ftp://, and as a present fax:// ! This last protocol allows a user to communicate with a HylaFAX server.
Here is a rudimentary R3 GUI script using the fax:// protocol Sendfax.r
All of this is a work in progress of course, and we do need some guidance from RT so that the schemes are consistent.
Carl has agreed to port R3 to ARM. The new plug computers use the Marvell ARM processors, and will make great REBOL appliances. The latest Plug 3 announced at CES 2010 this month have a sleek sexy form. And of course there's some talk of Android also running on ARM processors ... so this gives the expression REBOL in your face a whole new meaning!
REBOL web forum
Reboltalk has been down for months. I have started a new forum to replace it using vbulletin. You can sign up here.
Jocko has posted some sample extensions at his site. These include TTS using COM and a MatLab extension.
