2616[Clip] Re: Suggestion/Request: Rebol support
- Feb 8, 2000Good guess, Eb. Here is what the REBOL documentation says about STDIN and STDOUT:
Redirecting Input and Output
On most systems it is possible to redirect the standard input from, and output to, files. For example:
rebol -w script.r > output-file
redirects the output to the specified file. Similarly,
rebol -w script.r < input-file
redirects input. Both input and output redirection are permitted. Note that the -w option prevents the REBOL console window from spawning as it interferes with standard input and output redirect attempts.
That puts a fair amount of unwanted startup output onto standard output. To avoid it, the first command line argument should be -qw instead of just -w.
On the other hand, I haven't figured out what you do to get rebol actually to read from standard input -- I figured out how to read from a named file, but I haven't figured out how to specify standard input. Of course, there is a whole lot I haven't figured out about rebol. I've only had it for less than 24 hours, most of which I have spend doing things other than trying to figure out rebol.
