Every so often the topic of how to backup our FutureBASIC files comes up. Consider this: you're programming along saving every so often and making archive copies after testing your changes and then IT happens: the program stopped working and you just finished ten different global changes that should not affected anything. Basically you either use a comparison program (MPW's comparefiles is my favorite for this part) or you throw away the changes since the last working version of the program. The better way is to get Aladdin Flashback (by the makers of the StuffIt family) and you tell it what files to backup each time you save the file with some additional optional restrictions. And this is not just for those changes that you do wrong, every so often we encounter a compiler bug (FB3 is not alone there, I've seen serious bugs in major workstation compilers). Aladdin Flashback is not the sort of program that you know you need even after reading a review, it's one of those program that you don't know you need until after you started using it for months. I got my first copy at work as part of an Aladdin promotion of their new programs. Michael -- Michael Kluskens <mkluskens@...> Got a question? The answer is "I don't do windows."
