Thanks for the demos Ken. One or two comments here for everyone else  
since Ken already knows.

1) Global vars cannot be used in a local FN with a "clear local mode"  
header, so global var usage in FN IterateFolder is DOA.
2) See prior list thread on Iterate Folder for RP's suggestions using  
malloc and free instead of NewPtr and DisposePtr
3) See the section of the FBtoC manual regarding "adapting your  
code...." and the discussion of FSCatalogInfo. It applies in this  
situation too.

BTW: the FBtoC team tries to post code that is FBtoC compatible when  
time permits,  and I would encourage everyone to do the same since  
that is our direction. thanks!!
