Hope this did not show up earlier....can't tell if the email worked or

I once again have two questions, I'm sure all of you know the answers,
all except me.

1)  I am using the STR# resource and PG with the STR.INCL.  I am trying
to import strings with a length of 118 from a text file.  It does great
and fast up to record number 529.  Then I get an Error message.

Error #: -39
The modified resource coudnot be
marked as changed.

When I inspect the resource it has a size of 62954.  I don't think this
is a size problem....if I don't delete the resource and run the code
again, starting with the record that crashed, it will go again a few
hundred more then crash.  repeating again it will go to the total (878
records no crash).

cures, solutions, get lost?

2)  I would like to get the modification date/time of a file that has no
resource fork.  I'm sure you have an easy solution to this.

Thanks, you guys are great
