    Just ran into my old RB website. Haven't looked at it for a long time:

    • 1999
    • QuickSort and BubbleSort
    • Mars Saxman's Splitter control
    • diff algorithm
    • CRC calc
    • Exception Handling
    • Resource files
    • Plugin Plunger
    • REALbasic webring
    • 68k and PPC plugins
    • CodeWarrior!
    • Building Windows plugins on a Mac!!

    I use the Zip/UnZip methods multiple times every day in the Document Management system I wrote. Thank you Thomas!

    The zip classes went a long way. Originally written by a German Atari ST fellow for his MAUS mailbox client, I got his permission to use and improve it. I eventually put another, easier-to-use class layer on top and offered only that advanced APIs for purchase, while keeping the original, clumsier, free. It's not what keeps me alive, but pays for the occasional cappucino :)
