Thanks for remembering I was working on this and for supplying the information.  I hope some of this stuff becomes and example in the Staz's example folder. That's where I really learn to impliment stuff. These filespecs and toolbox functions are really difficult for me to understand, but with an example I can put them to use.

Tp open my docs, I check to see if the operating system is "< 10"  and i open the docs with the apps accordingly. I have used FB3 applescript capability in some cases. Today it seems that a script run from within fb3 using the "PRINT"  statements to print to applescript, can't find the application I wish to "tell", yet the separately compiled (or external) script run from FB3 with the "RUN" statement, CAN find the application. I don't know why the difference, but I will just use the external script even though it requires users to have another file in their folder.
