PasteboardRef looks like one of these polymorphic CF types that is  
derived from CFTypeRef ( which are defined as generic "pointers" in FB  
headers - for example in Tlbx CFBase.incl ).

Since this definition ( and toolbox defs ) is undoubtedly defined in  
Carbon ( and therefore will be inherited by FBtoC/FB5 during  
compilation ), it would need  a conditional compile for the #define  
such as:


#define PasteboardRef as CFTypeRef

toolbox fn PasteboardCreate( CFStringRef inName, PasteboardRef  
*outPasteboard ) = OSStatus


PasteboardFlavorFlags is defined as an UInt32 in the Xcode docs, so  
make it so.

The PasteboardItemID is apparently a void pointer but that doesn't  
look right for a ItemID. No time to look now. Maybe tomorrow.
