There appears to only be some minor changes. Looks at the Mac OS X Folder Manager ref: <http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx/Carbon/Files/FolderManager/Folde r_Manager/index.html> It looks like Mac OS X adds using a "domain" constant that you should use. I would guess that a properly written Carbon app that works fine on Mac OS 9 will work fine under Mac OS X, under most circumstances. The actual folder "Temporary Items" is on a per user basis. My user ID (UID) is 501, so my "Temporary Items" folder is at "/tmp/501/Temporary Items", user 502 would be at "/tmp/502/Temporary Items" Something created the same folder in my home directory, so perhaps it matters what domain you use. It almost seems proper to create the "Temporary Items" folder in the users directory but I don't see that happening much. The domain constants are explained in Folders.h, you'll want to experiment unless someone has done this already and can explain further.
