ok, that would be cool.
(i could presumably re-start it with a button in the fb editor.)

resedit doesn't throw up a "wanna save" dialog an a quit apple event?
how weird!

well, i guess we can disagree about that.          :+)

however, i wish it would check for the availability of the .rsrc file
-- and tell me if that .rsrc file isn't available -- _before_ 
it goes through and compiles the code, instead of _afterwards_.

(i'm compiling some very large programs on a very old machine,
so i pay a heavy penalty in wasted time when this happens.)
