TB stands for Toolbox, meaning it is part of the code available from the standard mac managers (memory manager, file manager etc.). Most of these "managers" have been available since the dawn of modern macs. For example, using FN NewHandle is a direct interface to the Mac memory manager's NewHandle function. The old Inside Macintosh (commonly referred to as IM) docs and the new apple documentation have reams of information for all Mac Toolbox calls. These are good starting points. > > I've seen Munger bandied about a lot, just never felt the need to know > about > it before. You can find many examples of munger use on the FB4 distribution CD. Easy way to find them is just to start up the QuiXample plugin. Point at at your FB4 folder and do a search for munger. You will find Code Styler (in the donations/programming utility folder) and other examples of munger. > I assume it would be useful in large data bases. Yes. However, there are other methods depending on the specific requirement and the amount of data processed. If you have a specific need, go ahead and post it. Brian S.
