Project: Remove references to Mac Classic in the Dictionary

Post by FourthWorld » Fri May 09, 2014 5:01 pm

The LiveCode Dictionary contain references to Mac Classic (Mac OS v9 and earlier), which is no longer supported by LiveCode. Some references to Mac Classic are also in the User Guide, but that will be handled as part of a larger tech edit scope for that document (see the Project section for that in this forum).

Removing references to Mac Classic would help make the more relevant current info easier to find, but the scope of the task is not trivial, nor entirely obvious.

For example, consider this bug report:
http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11838

The issue there is with the address function, which has changed between Mac OS 9 and OS X, and there are likely other tokens which will have to be reviewed for change as well.
