I just grabbed the tutorial stack and would also like to say thanks for
your effort! :)
My approach to learning to use Rev has been very task oriented so far
(as always it seems). I had a specific app in mind and just dove off
into the deep end, dug through the documentation and then yelled for
help when needed...
Unfortunately, I still haven't taken time to really explore many
possibilities outside of the needs for my current project, so your
tutorial will come in *very handy* in the near future.
Here's a general question: When using a standalone that calls a stack
for data storage purposes such as with the tutorial, does the data stack
have to use the .rev file extension or can it be used with any extention
we choose? [ .dat, etc.]
Again, thanks for sharing!!
