I have to agree with bowerbird. Even though you may have had some includes to
compile, you can't get a finished app and have to close the .rsrc file and
compile again. It might go quicker on the next compile (because all of the
includes are ready) but it still takes time and on an older machine (I have a
IIci) with a large app it is definitely an irritation.
