Avoid Long Hierarchical Menus

If you right-click (or Control-click) on some item, such as a file in the Finder, and one of the sub-menus has many options (Open With is a frequent culprit), it may take several seconds to open, even on a fast machine, which is annoying if you did not actually want that sub-menu.

The trick is to not pull the cursor through the menu, but in a curve around it, so the cursor does not touch any menu items until lower on the list where you wanted to go.

THINK C 5.0.4 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Symantec fixed the bug in THINK C 5.0.3 that we mentioned in TidBITS-149 and has made an updater available for FTP on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:

/info-mac/lang/think-c-504-tcl-112-update.hqx

The update corrects problems with the Quadra, the code motion optimization, and other problems present in earlier versions. The file also includes a TCL (THINK Class Libraries) update that is identical to the one from the 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 updates. If you are currently using version 5.0 or 5.0.1 and use the TCL, you need this update.

If you have any questions about this update, or about THINK C or THINK Pascal in general, please send them to Languages Tech Support at:
