Do Not Create Zero-Length Text Scraps

Revised by Dave Lyons (January 1991)
Written by Dave Lyons (July 1989)

This Technical Note described a problem with zero-length text scraps.

Changed since July 1989: This Note is obsolete beginning with System Software 5.0.3. There is no longer a problem with creating a text scrap of length zero.

In System Software 5.0.3 and later, LEFromScrap no longer trashes memory if you create a text scrap (scrap type 0) with length zero.
