Thanks for your kind words. I just started using RR this week and am not
completely 'tuned in.' I used to do SuperCard stuff years ago but quit when
I moved from Mac to PC. It's amazing how quickly you pick it back up again.
I'd like to fine tune this project a bit before submitting it for posting on
the RunRev website.
RR1.1 was most difficult starting up. The IDE doesn't seem to be debugged as
well as one might like. But I have to say, the plethora of commands,
handlers and functions now available is just astounding! Recently I saw a
friend of past years and he mentioned I should check this out. I'm hooked.
I explain the programming environment to others as a HyperCard / Java
hybrid. Syntax like HyperCard with performance better than compiled JAVA
(and compatibility too!) I programmed the CaptureJPG using the trial version
in a couple of hours as the first stack I tried. I did builds for Mac, PC,
and Linux and they all ran flawlessly! (can be downloaded at:
Very Impressive. My buddy who programs JAVA, C, Python, TKL, C++ etc said he
couldn't do the same and tested on all platforms in under 3 weeks! Kudos for
this programming environment!

Your earlier demo of updating Standalones is great! Nice code, and very
helpful in guiding me and others, I'm sure. Many thanks.
There is a User Contribution area on the Revolution site, I know you
have your own site (very nice) but others may find it useful if put on
the Rev site. It's great to get working examples and code to help learn
Transcript, found myself going 'ah haa' a few times.
