   if the platform is "MacOS" then
     put specialFolderPath("preferences") into regStatGoPath
     put regStatGoPath & "/text.txt" into stashAdX
   end if

   if there is a file stashAdX then
     answer Yes, there is a file"
     put URL ("binfile:" & stashAdX) into temp
     put compress(temp) into hipR
     put base64Encode(hipR) into URL ("binfile:" & stashAdX)
end if


  put URL ("file:" & stashAdX) into temp
  put temp into URL ("file:" & stashAdX)
