If this is true, I am screwed! I am committed to start converting a
massive SuperCard project, running on 4 CPUs, to Revolution. In order
to make this an orderly transition, I need to replace one software
module at a time. This means communicating between Macs using
AppleEvents, as SuperCard doesn't talk through sockets.
Why is this information in the dictionary if it hasn't ever worked?
Since AppleEvents is not cross-platform, shall I presume it is a low
priority for Runtiem Revilution Ltd and will probably NEVER work?
Here's a roundabout solution I just though of. How about a Rev stack
running on each Mac, alongside the SuperCard. Then Rev can talk to
Rev on the remote Macs via TCP/IP. Then the Rev on the remote Mac can
resend the command via AppleEvents to the SuperCard app running on
that same Mac.
