Hi Bernard, and others
I have not followed this thread closely, so I may be way off base;
believe that you are using Rev on a variety of Unix flavors - true?
Be that the case, since I think that few Rev developers/users are
it would be a big help if you were to indicate that you ARE.
you are having such difficulties. Otherwise, it is kind of scary to
the rest of us.
I'm even thinking that it might not be a totally bad idea to have
for the different platforms? I realize that a problem on one could
also be one
on the others as well, but???? This might not be a bad option. Anyone?
I've been using 3.0 pretty much since it first came out - Mac OSX -
not had any appreciable problems. Also saving as Legacy. A couple of
there, but probably associated with my not knowing the Legacy
So, my request is that maybe we can all better identify our platforms,
when airing complaints, so we may look at the things that most effect
