But the "Objects Formulas" tells you *why* you do things a certain way, and has lots of useful information besides the formulas. Get both, read the 'Objects formulas' to learn about the relations of various resources, but use the 'Formula Calc' to actually calculate ID numbers, it's much quicker and easier.

The "EV Objects Formulas" can be found at (url="http://"http://www.ixoft.com/")http://www.ixoft.com/(/url) if it is not in the archives here; "EV Formula Calc" can be downloaded from (url="http://"http://members.chello.se/wmb12729/ev/")http://members.chello.se/wmb12729/ev/(/url) among other places. A really useful document is the "Beginners Guide to ResEdit for EV, found in the 'guided' section of the archives here - it gives step-by-step instructions for creating the various EV resources. It is an excellent complement to the EV Bible. BTW- get the Annotated Edition of the EV Bible; lots more useful info in there than the original.
