Extracting PICT resources

I'll check my list of old XCMDS....there should be something that 
converts PICT resources into PICT files.... there's all kinds of 
resource xcmds out there.

You'll have to do the conversion in Hypercard  'cause  those won't work in Rev.
I have a collection called 'Clip To Pict' which has an x called 'Clip 
to Pict File'...

I know all the functions of 'Rescopy' were also broken out into different x's.

do you want me to find, stuff and make those available to you?
