DescriptionEdit

DEF CREATERESFILE replaces the obsolete CALL CREATERESFILE which has seen such heavy use in the past. Mac OS X made the call obsolete, but by exchanging the DEF keyword for the optional CALL keyword, you can breath new life into your programs. The DEF version of the call works in all versions of the system software from system 7.x to Mac OS X. If this call is successful, a resource file is created in the current directory. You may set the current directory using FOLDER.

DEF CREATERESFILE may also be used to add a resource fork to an existing file. Creating the resource file does not automatically open it.
