String stuff plugin 2.2 for REALbasic
String stuff plugin 2.2 is available.
This is a plugin that does many things. The simplest things it does
is: Returning a memoryblock that points to a string that you passed as
a parameter, allowing you to alter the string """"""""in place"""""""" simply by
altering the memoryblock's .byte property; doing ascb(midb(mystring, i,
1)) 9x faster; giving you an instrb equivilent for memoryblocks.
InCharSet returns the first character in the container that is
contained itself inside the CharSet parameter. So
InCharSet(""""""""xxxxxaxxxx"""""""",1,0,""""""""a"""""""") would return 6, because the first
character in """"""""xxxxxaxxxx"""""""" that is in """"""""a"""""""", is the 6th character.
OutCharSet returns the first character in the container that *isn't*
contained in the CharSet parameter. So

Thursby announces Free Version of DAVE for Mac OS X
Thursby announces Free Version of DAVE for Mac OS X.
July 17, 2001, Macworld Expo, New York
At Macworld Expo in New York City, Thursby Software Systems announced they
are making a free release of the first Mac OS X version of their popular
DAVE Mac to PC file sharing software. Thursby Software is demonstrating
this new release at the show and is making it immediately available for
free download from their web site: www.thursby.com.
When asked why a commercial software company would give away a key
technology, company president, William Thursby, responded """"""""Apple's
engineers have done an outstanding job of supporting us. Unfortunately,
they just have not been able to complete the key features to allow us to
properly integrate DAVE into Mac OS X in a timely manner. We remain
optimistic that we will be able to release a commercial version of DAVE for
Mac OS X in the near future, but for now we felt that we owed early
adopters of Mac OS X an interim solution.""""""""

ExtremeZ-IP for Mac OS X
ExtremeZ-IP Ends Mac OS X - Windows """"""""Blind Spot""""""""
Ensures Continued Access to Windows File Servers
Arlington, VA - July 13, 2001 - Group Logic, a leading vendor of network
workflow software, announced today its ExtremeZ-IP product uniquely allows
users of Apple's new Mac OS X to continue to use Windows NT and 2000 file
Mac users are accustomed to using the Chooser to locate servers quickly and
simply via the AppleTalk network protocol, but in OS X the Chooser is
replaced by the Connect to Servers function, which uses TCP/IP only. As a
result of this change, users of the new operating system find it difficult
and even impossible to locate and connect to servers based on Microsoft's
Services for Macintosh, a built-in component of the Windows NT and Windows
2000 server operating systems. ExtremeZ-IP, Group Logic's file server
product for mixed Macintosh and Windows networks, restores the network
connections - and users' productivity.
