OK, Dar, show me and I will grovel in mortification...especially if 
it involves Boxes.rev:

The first argument to the Mac Interapplication Communication Toolbox 
function, PPCOpen, is a pointer to a PPCOpen parameter block which 
includes (at specified byte offsets)...

	The address of a completion routine
	A pointer to a PPCPortRec structure
	A pointer to a LocationNameRec structure
	resFlag, a SignedByte
	networkVisible, a boolean [in Mac OS System format]

Other PPC functions need to see pointers to pointers, Str32s, and 
values in binary & real formats, integer & longInt arrays.

Show me how to define a PPCOpen parameter block in Transcript, and I 
will be even more impressed with your skills & wisdom than I am 

...and notice, I didn't even ask you to address the issue of passing 
a pointer as an argument.   :{`)
