ABOUT THE WORLD WIDE REB ------------------------ The World Wide REB is a network of interlinked REBOL sites that contain executable applications, data, documents, and links. The REB differs from the Web because it is based on the concept of distributed applications rather than displayable HTML documents. REB applications distribute processing across your local client and other servers and clients on the Internet. They can use a client-only, client-server, or a peer-to-peer model of computing. A REB application can be fully functional in just a few lines of code, and the code can run on a wide range of systems without modification. This approach is called Lightweight Distributed Computing (LDC) and it is distinguished from heavyweight DC which normally requires a large investment to deal with the SOAP, DCOM, RMI, IIOP, CORBA, XML, WSDL, SCL, NASSL, XSLT, UDDI, UML, MSXML, and other details. REBOL LDC is done with a single language that can handle code, data, semantic exchange, network protocols, messaging, plus... it runs everywhere. REBsites are hosted by standard Web servers and use HTTP for access. Anyone can create and maintain their own REB-site in a manner similar to a normal Web site. This folder contains links to various REBsites around the world. Many of these sites contain interesting and useful applications, examples, tools, images, animations, sounds, and documents. To visit a site, just click on an icon, and the desktop will show its contents. Note: some of these sites are located at distant locations in the world and may take several seconds to access the first time. To create and publish your own REBsite, read the Desktop document found in the Docs folder. It will tell you how to use the Add Site application found here. ABOUT SECURITY: It is safe to visit any REBsite. However, if you run scripts from a REBsite, and a security request pops up, DO NOT ALLOW THE REQUEST unless you trust the site and the application. You can inspect the contents of any REBOL script prior to running it by right clicking on its icon and selecting the edit option. If you encounter a harmful script, please notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will remove the site from the desktop folder.
