It's a replacement for the content of the plst resource that FB4 puts in a Carbon OS X application. I think you will get up to speed most easily if you do this little exercise first. Familiarization Exercise on plst resource ----------------------------------------- Build this FB4 program as a Carbon app: window 1 do HandleEvents until 0 and open the app in ResEdit.
