[REBOL] Re: Can't double-click rebol scripts on iMac

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 29-Aug-2002 8:48

Hi, Carl, There are two answers to your question: 1) TECHNICALLY: No, you can simply set the creator/type codes within your application's resource bundle. When it creates files, their creator/type can be set to whatever you wish. When your application is dropped into the file system the desktop database will be updated based on information in your app's resource fork. 2) POLITICALLY/CONVENTIONALLY: It is considered good manners to coordinate the creator/type codes you want to use. Otherwise you get the same sort of nonsense that we see in Visual CP/M, where selection of three-letter "extensions" is a free-for-all and it is quite common for a newly-installed app to grab ownership of types that you've been using with a previously-installed app (or for an OS upgrade to grab ownership of types formerly used by applications that m*cr*s*ft wants to put out of business. -jn- ----- Original Message ----- From: Carl Read <[carl--cybercraft--co--nz]> Date: Thursday, August 29, 2002 4:08 am
