Are you looking for an alternative way to store PICTs for use in the program? I"m assuming you want to do more than simply remove the resource calls in your program (which would achieve your stated goal above). > Below are the resource access commands that I must replace. Hmmm....."must replace"? Sharing the compelling reason might help with more directed assistance. Resources are available in an OS X bundled application, so there is no compelling reason to replace them from that perspective. Are you planning to use Quartz (aka Core Graphics) instead? > > Are there any equivalent commands for saving data into the datafork > of a file? For saving data, yes. Saving resources is another matter. Have you read the "Carbon Porting Guide" from Apple? http:// developer.apple.com/documentation/Carbon/Conceptual/ carbon_porting_guide/index.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP30000991 It specifically mentions moving resources to Data Fork-based files using the Corefoundation (CF) CFBundle APIs. This is just an overview but I'm not sure if this is what you want. FB-created apps are currently CFM-based and not Mach-O, so there are some limits regarding use of resources. If the goal is to create a bundled OS X app, there is no need to dump your resources or convert them. Maybe a little elaboration from you would help. Brian S.
