We like to keep REBOL really easy to run, so...
Once you've downloaded the program, check that it works on your system:
|On Windows:||Double click on the icon you just downloaded. The REBOL console will open.|
|On others:||Run the program from the shell prompt. (Many systems require ./name syntax for local files.)|
If the REBOL program does not run, make sure that your OS is supported. If it is a commonly used OS, and the program does not run, please contact us via the Feedback.
Please read the R3 Alpha page. Pay attention to the warnings.
Here are a few other notes:
|Network settings||R3 does not require network settings. This means that in order to use R3, you need direct access to the Internet. No proxy access is supported at this time. (R3 does plan to support it in the beta release.)|
|Demos to try||From the console, type demo to download and see the current demos. Note that graphics demos will not be run from non-graphics (server) versions of R3.|
|Version updates||Check for updates often using the upgrade function.|
|About the console||The console is a bit crude. It's just the Microsoft command shell. On other systems, the console is whatever default shell for that system. Later, we may add back a special console if there's user interest in doing so.|
