Not, not Hush-Hush at all! I keep all my .rev files as separate
files. I have a folder structure like this (names without an
extension are folders:
AppName <- Main App Folder.
AppName.rev <- This is the "Splash-Screen" Stack and is
built into a Standalone.
RunTIme/Externals <- A place to keep External Commands
RunTime/Images <-A place to keep images
RunTime/Stacks <-A place to keep the .rev files for the Application.
The AppName.rev file displays a splash-screen (but it doesn't have
to) and then starts up the App proper by transferring to a .rev file
in the RunTime/Stacks folder. I usually call this "AppMain.Rev". A
Typical app might have the following .rev files associated with it:
About.rev Stack to Display the about box.
Prefs.rev Stack to Handle Preferences.
GloablsUtils.rev Stack to hold "Global" Utility functions/handlers
that can be used anywhere in the App.
AppMain.rev Stack that contains the Application you are
Of course you can add as many .rev files for this as you like.
I use this structure in the IDE, but when a Standalone is built the
structure is replicated in the Standalone. On windows it creates a
new folder, but on Mac all the folders are inside the App "Package"
and so hidden from the user.
I also have code contained in the "Splash-Screen" Stack which runs
when the Standalone is built and copies folders and files from the
IDE into the Standalone folder.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask more if you like.
All the Best
