If my memory isn't playing tricks on me, I think
you'll have to binhex the stack after compacting it,
before you transfer it to a Windows machine --
otherwise some bytes might not come through correctly.
You can then open this binhexed file directly from
Rev, it will recognize it and convert it -- and it
will even convert some of the resources.
Hee, I may have the memory of a goldfish, but
sometimes it digs up information that could be useful:
