For your convenience, all Program Generator filters and includes are placed
in a folder with the PG applicaiton. You can get the RdWr filter from
there. If you look at the filter, you will see that we translated it as

CALL "RdWr",RdWrID% : ioErr =

Look at our example for speakText. (Path: Examples/Handbook

You'll see that we include a special file to make things work.

include "Tlbx SpeechSynthesis.Incl"

If you ever want to find a toolbox function that is not included, but may
be defined, you click on the name of the toolbox and hit command-e. (In the
next version you will also be able to command-double-click.) This will take
you to the include file where the toolbox is defined. You need to make sure
that that include is in your project or is included with an INCLUDE line as
in our example.

I believe that you are correct.

I need some more details on this. Fat/PPC/68K? Your System Vers/Mach/RAM?
Virtual memory?
