Hi Heather, Herbie, Alain, Sometime soon I'm going to have to do a "simple" file copy operation like Command D does in the Finder. Good grief, is that already in the realm of "More Files" as soon a resource fork is present!? I have recently picked up an AppleScripted Finder manual. Is it an ally of FB or a rival? Or both? I do use FB as a tool for massive ad hoc file manipulation tasks, and it looks like this applescript stuff would handle that. Anyone have experience/recommendations? This stuff is not very new. See http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/mac/AppleScriptFind I failed to get the PDF version intact. Mail me if you do. Also mail me if you want the HTML download of >> 100 files; it's only 360K compressed while the PDF is nearer 1Meg. Cheers Larry S PS. By all means do post all such demos/libraries at futurebasic.org after telling us the story behind your efforts right here. PPS. Herbie has sent me his collection of FBII AE functions defined via 68K inline Assembly. Looks neat.
