Curses! I'm now at least half a year late in starting serious Revo 
work based on Mac-only  products I've already written using 
SuperCard. In one I make heavy use of HyperGraph and in all my 
products I need reasonable levels of printing sophistication 
currently provided by PrintReport. As one of my main motives is to go 
cross-platform, XCMDs/XCFNs wouldn't help me anyway.

HyperGraph (Boojum/Royal Software - still working in MacOS 9.2.2 
after all these years!) is essentially a chart-drawing utility which 
draws a repertoire of charts from data in arrays - I now think one of 
my early scripting projects will have to be something similar (but 
not a rip-off!), unless someone's already done it. I've missed a few 
weeks of this list - does anyone know of work already done in this 
area?

TIA

Graham
