Nope. Is there in both FB and FBtoC.

There is a most likely a logic error in your code. Post more code and  
maybe we can help diagnose.

There are always discussions about lots of things. That is the easy  
part of the process. The hard part is finding someone to do the  
work.  Bernie, me, RP and Michele have our hands full. Chris Wyatt  
has taken on the documentation challenge ( thank you Chris ). If we  
missed any volunteers for projects, please chime in.

AFAIK, Wikipedia is incomplete and should not be consulted yet. Try  
the FB Reference manual in the HELP MENU.

AFAIK, all the *FB* calls are documented. What I assume you are  
referring to are modern toolbox or framework calls. In that case  
either the specific include for those functions ( like the  
carbonevents include ) or the Apple documentation describes what the  
calls do. For example, if you will not find an FB manual describing  
how to use FSRefs or CFURLRefs with files.

Moreover, there is no company to accept complaints about any missing  
information. ****** ALL ****** enhancements are the responsibility of  
the list members.

If you have a specific need for "modern" calls, please post on the list.
