What I heard was this.....although AppleScript will be PPC native (and hence faster), the Apple Event Manager has not been updated, so Apple Events won't necesarilly be faster. However, on a fast G3 (and then a superfast FB^3 to come), it still may be fast enough. >The latest detailed design I started (for FB) was >multi-user across a network using Apple Events to >communicate to a faceless background "server" app. Interesting!!! Is the server also an FB app? Scott JMar Engineering jmar@... http://home1.gte.net/jmar "There's something really special about FutureBASIC"
