I followed the link to fslogger you provided. Cool! I think this is
what I need... sort of... maybe. But how do I proceed from here? I
don't even know what to do with the system file that I downloaded
from the site. What is it? Where does it go? How do I get Rev or
SuperCard to tap into the events it catches and logs? I've never
received (or was not aware if I did) an event from an app external to
my xTalk stack or project. What would that look like? I know that
AppleScript can send events to xTalk objects... how can I get
fslogger to send AppleEvent messages to my stacks or projects?
Very obviously confused and wanting to learn.
