Staz Software Welcomes Metalbasic Users
STAZ SOFTWARE WELCOMES METALBASIC USERS WHY? STAZ Software, Inc., developer of FutureBASIC, has long looked on MetalBasic with interest and goodwill [see (]. Andy Gariepy, the driving force behind FutureBASIC for over a decade, had this to say: "I've always worked hard to improve FutureBASIC. It's easy to understand Marin Saric's determination to make the most of MetalBasic." Still, there has been concern among MetalBasic coders as to Mac OS X support and the continued development of the environment. FutureBASIC is one of the few programming environments to have crossed the great divide from 68K to PPC and now to Carbon. The people at STAZ Software understand the need to stand-by users, but also how difficult these changes can be. WHAT? There seems to be a consensus that from the editing and programming perspectives, [as well as the fierce determination to be the best :-) ], FutureBASIC and MetalBasic have a lot in common...

ResPloder 1.0
The La Jolla Underground is pleased to announce the immediate availability of ResPloder 1.0. ResPloder explodes the resources of a file into folders. These folders are named after the types they came from. Inside each folder are files containing the data for each resource of that type. These files are simple binary files and can be edited with any hex editor. The data fork of the original file is preserved as a file called data.frk and it can also be edited. ResPloder can implode a ResPloded folder back into a file. Drop a ResPloder-created folder onto ResPloder and a new file with exactly the same structure as the original file will be created. If any of the resource files in the ResPloded folder have been modified, then the changes will become part of the new file. ResPloder is made with REALbasic. ResPloder can be found at: Please send any comments to: Thank you. William Leshner The La Jolla Underground
