HyperCard has an 'answer file' command that should do this on a Mac. I don't
have Rev open, but are you saying it doesn't support that command?

Also, I seem to remember something a month or two ago, about allowing Rev on
any platform being able to query what platform it is connected to, then you
can use if/then statements to to decide on syntax changes, if available and

But I could easily be wrong about that, and don't remember the results of
the discussion.
