Spooky is a good word.
Appears only to have been yesterday, the 18th. Not reproduced since. I am
starting to use the altArchive plugin to make auto backups. Not sure if
this will only backup the "static, unchanged" version or the progressive
ones am hoping for.
I created the following plugin: SaveWithScriptPI.rev added to altPlugins
toolbar. Works like a charm. I feel better.
on saveWithScriptBkup --1.19.06 Mac OSX version
put the short name of the topStack into stk
put the mainStack of stack stk into stk
--then put the script in another folder
put "file:" & specialFolderPath("docs") &"/scriptsRev/" into pathh
get the short name of the topStack
put pathh & the seconds & it & "SCPT.txt" into pathhFN
put the script of this stack into url pathhFN
--using the seconds gives automatic script versioning without doing the
altArchive of the whole stack file each time. I like doing frequent saves
while scripting, sometimes 4 or 5 saves in 5 minutes.
This will work for my programming style, which is to do most all of my
scripts in the stack script container, using buttons and fields as
do the short name of me
do (the short name of me & "Down")
I will let you know if any thing else of note happens.
