Headers: >> Download Header files [Release 6 US]

This update includes several minor repairs to header files that have been reported since Release 6 was shipped. The following items have changed:
  • We’ve added DEF CREATERESFILE(name$) which should work fine from 68k to OSX.
  • container$$ += container$$ has been fixed.
  • A bug where the last item in debugger pop-ups wasn't accessible has been fixed.
  • Push buttons were not always drawn in the expected state. This has been repaired in both the Appearance Runtime and the Standard BASIC Runtime.
  • A left-over Stop statement has now been removed from Button Close in the Runtime. Before this correction was made, the Button Close and Window Close statements could give rise to an unwanted and meaningless Stop alert.
  • The HTML routines needed some minor tweaking to bring them up to date for Mac OS X.
  • The SOUND routine had a memory leak that might have eventually filled the application heap during heavy and extended use.
  • There have been some minor changes to repair display issues with the Console Runtime.
  • USR OPENRFPERM has been reinstated as a replacement to FN OPENRFPERM. This function works in any system (Mac OS 7.x through Mac OS X). The calling convention is resRef = USR OPENRFPERM(resFileName$,vRefNum,permission). If resRef is zero or negative, then the file was not opened. If resRef is a positive number, the file was opened and it will have to be closed by your program using CALL CLOSERESFILE(resRef) at some point..
  • The ENABLE/DISABLE routines for menus were the old type which limited menus to 31 items. Now, when possible, the new Toolbox routines are used.
  • The internal workings of containers have been reworked to prevent possible out-of-memory situations.
