Macro/Applescript updates planned
- I'm beginning a project to update the 25 or 30 third-party
macro and Applescript utilities we have, for optimum
performance under SheepShaver, i.e. with Intel machines
and OS versions 10.5 and later.
Most need no updating at all, except that some
documentation files need new graphics, since they were done
in graphic formats that postdate system 7.
Some need minor updating. DocCompare doesn't yet work
under SS, due to a conflict I haven't figured out between SS
and MacPerl, or at least these versions of both. But most
work just fine.
Some need improvement in any case. My regex search utility
should stay open after a search, until the user quits it, and
that's a small rewrite.
What I want to ask the group, or those members using SS, is
what they'd like to see updated first. Is there anything you'd
find especially useful, or does anything have a glitch under
SS that I haven't seen?

Then, open each of the AppleScript script and droplet files of DocCompare 2.0.1 in Script Editor, tell Script Editor where MacPerl is, add and remove a character to force it to recompile, and save. You may then put the script into the OtherMenu folder and the droplet onto the Desktop. Don't forget to install the "WP DocCompare Prep" macro (see ReadMe).
