Hi FB programmers, The old style FB list digests for August 99 are up on: ftp://topo.math.u-psud.fr/pub/lcs/fb/FBdigests1999 This is a binary file compressed by MacGzip1.1.2 http://www.cps.unizar.es/~spd/, (MacGzip1.1.3 is due soon but MacGzip1.1.2 seems rock solid to me.) Good odds that one of your Stuffit Expanders will decompact the archive. However as a safety net, the free parent utility is there too, in the old fashioned ".sea.hqx" format. Cheers Larry Siebenmann "That was the month that was":-- Great good news was that Statz is proud father of FB3 - flashing CD cigars left and right. There will be a lot of diapers to change and I know the list will lend a hand. Related good news that deserves loud cheers: --- Rick Brown our prodigious fountain of understanding of both FB and Mac toolbox is reworking the FB3 documentation. --- Otto Schlosser <otto@...> our man from the the Apple documentation team is willing to advise. I suspect FB doc has never had such such a broad and star studded cast. Name me another compiler for Mac that has been going strong for the whole life history of the Mac. It's a Mac classic and has every chance to become a very great classic. Oh yes, now the bad news: Franklin the the doomsayer <TacitR@...> gets my best Bronx cheer for pouring sour grapes on FB while insistantly delivering lenient gush on RB (see list archives since April).
