Disable BBEdit's 'APE' crash warning
Authored by: Han Solo on Jun 13, '05 11:18:20AM
I use BBEdit regularly and I don't have APE or any "haxies" installed... and its been years since I have experienced a crash with BBEdit (back in some early version of 10.2.x, IIRC).

Disable BBEdit's 'APE' crash warning

Though it would be nice to pin crashes on Unsanity haxies... I just don't see it.

I use BBEdit daily as well AND have APE running with a bunch of Unsanity Haxies... and I too haven't had a BBEdit crash in a long while. Even so, thousands upon thousands of apps run fine with Unsanity haxies in place... if there is an issue with BBEdit and a haxie... it is still most likely at least partially to do with something in BBEdit that isn't quite kosher.

Unsanity's creations are surprisingly stable and smooth... nothing like old MacOS extensions at all... and some are very helpful and not just visual. Folks should avoid equating APE to crashes and general instability when there are so many other, much more likely candidates. OSX is a whole different breed... disabling "extensions" to cure problems and "zapping pram" doesn't really work here.

Even if a haxie brings about a crash more readily (which I doubt), it's more likely than not due to some other problem that won't go away even when the haxie is disabled.

Is there a connection? I use both BBEdit and a couple Unsanity haxies, including Window Shade. They both work perfectly together. I know BBEdit has crashed once or twice over the years, but I wouldn't chalk that up to any particular fault of Unsanity or BBEdit for that matter.
