Got it. It was one of the first things I looked at. Nicely written.

Access to system DLLs would be very good and Intellisense would be nice to
have though not as important. I've spent a bit more time with the
documentation and it is pretty good. One thing I didn't get was Option
Explicit. There is a similar thing in Rev but I couldn't find out where to
set it. I have quite a few questions but most of them are probably in the
docs. I haven't found anything on TWAIN yet and a lot of what I do is
graphical. Is there a way of accessing cameras and scanners in an app?

I think it would be great to have a site with a lot of little snippets of
how-to code and mini tutorials similar to the tutorials built in. I need
time to really play with Rev but right now I have three projects to get out
in the next two months. One of them I'd love to do in Rev but I will need to
write up all the functions first to make sure they can all be done.
