Type/Creator for Carbon VIM?
I note that the Carbon builds of VIM have ???? listed as it its
"creator" (or whatever you call the info in PkgInfo and Info.plist's
CFBundleSignature.) Any reason you chose not to keep using VIM!?

looked like the appropriate slot in Project Builder, and it did not seem
to work. If I do this, will OzTeX invoke Carbon vim instead of starting
up Classic mode to launch Classic vim? (That would make me happy!)

I'm not a programmer (haven't done any in a long time, anyhow) and
haven't used Project Builder, so I can't help there. I just looked in
the application package and opened PkgInfo and Info.plist by hand to see
what was inside -- perhaps you could just edit them that way. (I have
no idea if OS X expects this information to be hard-coded elsewhere as
well.) I'd recommend studying the PkgInfo and Info.plist files for an
assortment of other packaged applications to see how they do it.

Wish I knew! I haven't quite been able to tell how this all fits
together in OS X yet if an application doesn't have Classic Mac OS-style
type/creators. Some seem to behave better than others, and I haven't
sorted out exactly why, yet.
I asked the question, in fact, because Andrew was asking about
type/creators for editors that folks might want to use with OzTeX. You
might want to get into direct contact with him: <andrew@...>
If you guys figure it out, I'd love to hear what you come up with.
