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?

acgi dispatcher for Mac OS X
"James Sentman announces the release of acgi dispatcher 1.0 for Mac OS X." Richmond, VA - April 19th, 2002. Acgi dispatcher allows you to write cgi programs in AppleScript that can be run with the Apache web server that is built in to Mac OS X. This has been a much used feature of the classic Mac OS for many years. By giving us Apache as the new personal web sharing Apple gave us an enterprise level server, but took away the ability to code for it in Apple Script. Acgi dispatcher provides an easy to configure interface between the unix layer and Apple Script. In addition to providing the "on handle cgi request" handler for regular acgi Apple Scripts, acgi dispatcher also supports applications that need to be called via the "Launch At Suffix" mapping which is used by pre-processors. Acgi dispatcher will happily send these events to programs running either as Mac OS X applications or applications running in the classic environment.

Will Cosgrove Releases REALbasic plugin for Speech Recognition
Will Cosgrove is pleased to announce his latest REALbasic plugin which allows REALbasic to use Speech Recognition. It doesn't do anything fancy like paths and multiple language models, but it's really easy to use and should cover most users demands. His plug-in works with Speech Manager 1.5 or higher in PPC and Carbon applications. A couple highlights of this plug-in are: - It uses all the speech feedback methods to allow you to customize your speech responses. - It allows you to install speech help in the Speech Command window under Mac OS X which, up to this point, is an undocumented feature. You can download it at: Registration is a whopping $5 simply to fund continued development of it and other REALbasic classes and plug-ins. Enjoy! Cheers, Will C.
